by Cheryl DysonOn Veterans Day we honor all, Who answered to a service call. Soldiers young, and soldiers old, Fought for freedom, brave and bold. Some have lived, while others died, And all of them deserve our pride. We’re proud of all the soldiers who, Kept thinking of red, white and blue. They fought for us and all our rights, They fought through many days and nights. And though we may not know each name, We thank ALL veterans just the same.
Thank you dear veterans…Let today be a day that you are remembered! May we all thank them at anytime when you see them in uniform, wearing their hat proudly or even a lapel.
