Hail to the Vets

We are so blessed in the US of A. With all of her bads there are twice as many goods to brag about. Deep down, I believe we care.

At least I do. Especially when it comes to our armed forces. They’ve given so much. And for that I give

A salute to our troops
For they have served us well
Some have given their all
Others have gone to hell

And back just to
Make sure we’re safe in the U.S.
Some have been injured,
Maimed, tattered and messed

Up both inside and out
Still reeling from the pain
Some throughout their bodies
Others inside their brains

For their dedication & commitment
On this we’ve set aside
To honor and reverence
Those afar and stateside

Much respect to the many men and women who have served this great country. Thank you.

  1. So, having done 26 years, 4 months in our Submarine Force…I’m very pleased to see your words Dorothy. It was a wonderful ride…and the most meaningful task to which I could apply my life.

    Thank you!
