Monday, November 12, 2012 - VETERAN'S DAY

In honor of our veterans who fought unselfishly for this grateful country in all wars past and present, thank you for your service today and everyday.

To those near and dear to me who served for this country, in Vietnam, my brothers Bill (Navy) and Jack (Army), Korea my father-in-law, Bernard C. Meyer, in WWII, my uncles Adam (Navy), John (Navy). Also my brother-in-law David (Army) who served, I thank you and love you all!

American soldiers sacrifice so much,
All for the freedom of our country.
Leaving their families and heading off to war,
Not knowing what the future holds.
Working day and night
Determined to stay strong.
Watching friends be killed every day
Letters from home inspiring them to keep fighting
So little is given to them
Although there is little to do,
For those who have died in war
We can still remember
Remember all the men who have died.
Remember all the battles fought
Remember all the tears families cried
Remember it was freedom the soldiers brought
To this very day soldiers are under-appreciated
Veterans Day is the day
For the dead, living, and fighting soldiers
To be remembered

To all the veteran's today is your day!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  

If you have not thanked a veteran, today's the day to reach out and thank them.
