On this Veterans day
May we all stop and pause
To remember all our Vet's
Who stood up for the cause
Let us say a silent prayer
For those who unselfishly did give
For all of those who lost thier life
And those who yet still live



Let us cherish our freedom
Remembering it comes with a cost
If not for the bravery of our Soldier's
This nation would be lost
When we stand before our flag
Gazing upon the red, white and blue
Let us humbly honor those
Who gallantly fought for me and you



Theirs was not an easy task
They faced many hardships of war
They lived and breathed atrocities
They'd never experienced before
Let us all as a nation
Honor and pay tribute to our Soldier's brave
By thinking of them with gratitude
Each time we see Old Glory wave
