[wpcol_2third id=”” class=”” style=””]To all the vets from every war
That knew the risks they had in store,
There’s more to you I’d like to say
Than thank you on this Veterans Day.
The way you risk your lives is brave.
Your families get a good-bye wave.
Then from caves to oceans blue
You fight for life and freedom too.
You fight for those you’ve never met.
Your sacrifice, I’ll not forget.
You let us feel that we’re secured.
So thanks for all that you’ve endured!
We’ve been assured that we can pray.
And speak our minds in every way.
You’ve laid your lives out on the line.
Your stars and stripes will always shine!
