I also say a big thank you to all of our armed forces current or retired. What you have done has allowed all of us to express our feelings in a free way. Thank You!!!

Yes, can't say enough for those who have served the country over the years. Whether in war time, or in peace, in combat or support, it's deeply appricated when someone sacrifices their time and perhaps live for their country.

America is not without flaws, but it's worth defending. And I tip my hat to those who do it.

A couple poems I've enjoyed on this Veteran's Day.....


I've never tripped a booby trap,
or stood upon a mine,
but I have seen what happens,
when you're out there on the line.

Some men die real hard,
others not so bad,
but it really doesn't matter,
when you've given all you had.

I was never wounded,
so I never felt the shock,
or felt the pain rip through my body,
while calling our for Doc.

Sometimes the pain is awful,
it can make you want to dry,
that pain can get so bad at times,
you might pray to God to die.

I know I was lucky,
that it never happened to me,
and that someone else's blood,
was shed to keep me free.


A Soldier's Prayer

Oh Lord!
Here we sit on this foreign soil,
So very far from home and loved one all.
Death so very near and we so very much afraid.

Please help my comrades and I,
For we wish not to die alone.
We pray that you will be here,
To hear our cry and us to your breast to take.

You are the only living Lord,
We give ourselves to you.
If we must die, and die we must,
Please take us home on high with you.

With outstretched hands we grasp for thee,
Thy love so tender and yet so strong.
Every breath of ours is yours to have,
We need you, Oh so very much Lord.
