There are so many of them out there. They walk amongst us. They work beside us. Some of them even live in our own house! Have YOU thanked them lately?
"You went to where we could not go
whether you wanted to or not;
yet now, you say that you will do it
again upon the spot!
You left your life behind to serve
and keep US safe and sound.
May our honor and our gratitude,
for each of you, be found!
Drafted or enlisted
or branch to matter not;
neither rank to affect the thanks
for each of you we've got!
But may the lives we live reflect
the value of your time;
and caring for you and your needs now
THAT should be most prime!!
Veteran, you are appreciated,
regardless what you've heard!
To prove it, THIS man has little more
than the assembled word!
But, in these words, may you realize
that we are grateful so
that you put our lives before your own,
into the unknown, to go!"
You know who you are. I only know so many of you, but this is written in honor of ALL of you who have been in service to this great country. Thank you again and may God bless you abundantly!
