Veteran's Honor

We honor our veterans and give them their due,
words can't express thanks for trials they went through.

Our young men complied trusting other men's orders,
relying on training to protect allied borders.

Missing most holidays and family events,
questioning not the places they went.

While they sat in foxholes, dirty and cold,
we were protected by those brave and bold.

Many saw action, some gave their lives,
never returning to husbands and wives.

While we took for granted our freedom and flag,
veterans saw buddies sent home in a bag.

So, honor our veterans and give them their due,
words can't express thanks for trials they went through.
