Ode To A Veteran

Written by: Lucilla Carrillo

What is a Veteran? A veteran is a man ,or woman that has been to war and fought for our Country and our freedom. A Veteran is sometimes an unsung hero. One that we never hear about and sometimes He, or she is just forgotten. Today I want to say to our Veterans - you are our heroes. you put your life on the line for us. The ones that lost their lives are now in God's hands, but you are still here. You might have lost an arm, or a leg, maybe both legs - you did it in the line of duty. Maybe you still have both arms and both legs, that don't mean that you didn't lose anything in the war. You could have lost your best friend, or many friends. Now you only have memories. Today my Veteran I want you to know - that if it wasn't for you, we would not be able to enjoy the freedom that we enjoy today. It is not free - you have paid a high price for it. Thank for being the special hero you are. This is what I think a Veteran is...
