REMEMBERANCE DAY

On rememberance day we honour all
Each gave their best enduring call
God bless each one for being there
All our service men did their share.

Soldiers young and soldiers old
Fought in wars brave and bold
They fought in air, land and sea
If not for them where would we be.

Some lived while others died
As they fought side by side
They fought many a day and night
Their mission sure, their spirits bright.

Their loved ones bore a great pain
So many thoughts will never wane
We're proud of all the forces who
Fought for the red, white and blue.

We'll never let their special day
Their time of honour slip away
Though we may not know each name
We think of all who fought just the same.

    Yes, I sure do love them. They are so brave, courageous, and sweet. A lot of them don't think of themselves and always put others first. They are a special breed. We sure honor them. Great write, Hazel. Thanks for writing this. Love ya, Toquyen

    Thank you Toquyen, yes I believe all service men should be honoured in some way. My own father was in the 39-45 war and was taken prisoner by the Japanese. Hazel.
