On Veterans Day we honor all Who answered to a service call. Soldiers young, and soldiers old, Fought for freedom, brave and bold. Some have lived, whole others died, And all of them deserve our pride. We始re proud of all the soldiers who, Kept thinking red, white, and blue. They fought for us and all our rights, They fought through many days and nights. And though we may not know each name, We thank ALL veteran始s just the same. By: Cheryl Dyson
