Take A Moment To Thank A Veteran

When you see someone in a uniform,
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,
Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.
Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
“Thanks for what you’re doing
To keep us safe in the USA!”

Happy Veterans Day Poem give below

Vets ate free at Applebee’s
To honor them this day,
A heartfelt offer bringing
Good publicity their way.

Lots of stores gave discounts, too,
To soldiers with I.D.
And many took advantage
Of this generosity.

Every town and city had
A veterans’ parade,
With marching bands and waving flags
Quite jauntily displayed.

It shouldn’t be one day a year
To venerate our vets,
Whose sacrifices often bring
Such heartache and regrets.

We really cannot comprehend
How much their service cost;
Survivors often pay the price
For those whose lives were lost.

Our veterans deserve respect;
The military’s tough.
A gratis meal or dollars off
Is great, but not enough.

Final Inspection Parts I

The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as brightly as his brass.
“Step forward now, you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?”
The Soldier squared his shoulders and
said, “No, Lord, I guess I ain’t
Because those of us who carry guns
Can’t always be a saint.
I’ve had to work most Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I’ve been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I’ve wept unmanly tears.
I know I don’t deserve a place
Among the people here,
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
It needn’t be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don’t, I’ll understand.”
There was a silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God,
“Step forward now, you Soldier,
You’ve borne your burdens well,
Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,
You’ve done your time in Hell.”

By: Sgt Joshua Helterbran

We Owe Them a Lot

On Veterans Day we remember again
Our men and women who served;
We honor them now for what they did then:
The liberties they preserved.
Let’s never forget their sacrifice,
The hard, heavy work they have done;
They did what was asked, crucial needs they fulfilled,
With a telephone, pencil or gun.
We’re happy and proud to honor them;
They gave so much more than they got.
Our heroes, our veterans kept freedom safe;
All of us owe them a lot.

Secret Respect

There’s not a Fascist in the USA
Who doesn’t, in their true heart, say
I’m thankful for those who serve and fight,
So I can peacefully sleep at night.

No partisan politics can keep away
The gratitude I feel, but cannot say
To veterans who kept America secured,
With all the hardships they endured.

Away from family, friends and more,
They knew what they were working for:
Keeping freedom really free
For the right, the middle, and even me.

Veterans, you have my deep respect,
Even if it isn’t politically correct.

By Joanna Fuchs

What We Do

We don’t go through all the training.
We never experience the fear.
What we do
Is always, always wish
That you were here.
Where would we be
If you didn’t sacrifice?
Your time, your futures –
Too often your lives.
What we do
Is love you, our veterans.

By Natasha Niemi

You’re My Hero

Without you this country wouldn’t be the same;
You fight and you battle
For our common name.
Your level of courage is oh so rare
You’re dedicated and faithful;
You’re always there.
You’re my hero,
My favorite soldier,
And I love you.
Come home soon!

By Natasha Niemi

You Are Remembered

You’re always remembered
For we can never forget –
Your courage and sacrifice
So that others can live –
With hope and without fear.
Know on this day
And all days,
You are remembered.

By Natasha Niemi
