To all that have served and are...
May not be the best poety, might be said simply. Seems fitting for this day:
They Did Their Share
On Veterans Day we honor
Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.
Some of them were drafted;
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some its been many years;
In the jungle or the desert,
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.
Some came back; some didnt.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk;
All of them did their share.
No matter what the duty,
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.
Let every veteran be honored;
Dont let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died;
What they did, we cant repay.
We owe so much to them,
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Lets say "thank you" to every wearer.
