Many men and women have lost their lives in war,
Engaging in battles far and wide,
Making it safe for you and I.
On this day each year, we take the time to,
Remember their sacrifice.
Invocations will be offered,
At ceremonies proffered,
Laying wreaths and decorating graves.
Duty bound heroes gave their all.
A grateful nation pauses to reflect,
Your sacrifice will not be forgotten.
