A Salute to our Veterans

To all the brave souls who served our land,
We tip our hats and lend a hand.
For you have given so much to us,
With courage and grit, without a fuss.

On battlefields both far and near,
You stood your ground without a fear.
Through hardships, loss, and sacrifice,
You fought for our freedom, paid the price.

We honor you on this day of thanks,
With words of gratitude, not just blanks.
For your unwavering commitment,
We hold you high in our sentiment.

So here’s a salute to our veterans,
Your service to our country, heaven sent.
May the respect and honor we show,
Warm your hearts with a patriotic glow.

They Served with Pride

They served with pride, those noble few,
Who swore to defend the red, white, and blue.
Their duty called, they heeded the call,
With courage and valor, they stood tall.

From the Navy, Army, Air Force, and more,
They served in fields of danger, endless war.
With every step, they held their heads high,
Ready to fight, willing to die.

In distant lands, they fought for peace,
Their hearts and souls, they did release.
To protect our freedom, our constitution,
They gave it all without hesitation.

We thank them now, with hearts full of love,
For the sacrifices made, those spoken of.
May gratitude and honor be their reward,
For they served with pride, our living sword.

A Grateful Nation: A Veterans Day Tribute

On this day we pay tribute to those who served,
To those who gave their all, to those who deserved
Our undying thanks and eternal gratitude,
For defending our freedom with steadfast fortitude.

For the soldier who marched into battle with might,
To the sailor who braved the tempestuous night,
To the airman who flew through the dangerous skies,
To the marine who fought with a resolute guise.

We honor the brave who left loved ones behind,
To risk life and limb and bear hardships unkind,
Who answered the call to defend our way of life,
And never lost sight of the cause of their strife.

Their sacrifices cannot be measured in gold,
For only their courage and strength we behold,
As we bask in the light of liberty they secured,
And cherish the freedoms they steadfastly endured.

Their bravery resounds throughout history’s halls,
For they stood tall to fend off freedom’s foes,
To secure a future that we so fondly embrace,
And for that we say thank you with solemn grace.

So let us honor all who answered the call,
To defend our country with valor and gall,
We salute and thank them for all they have done,
And pledge to never forget what they have won.

For their love of country and selfless sacrifice,
We owe them a grateful nation’s highest price,
So on this day we stand with hearts held high,
To honor and thank our heroes, until the end of time.

Gratitude for our Veterans

In times of war, in times of peace,
You answered the call, your courage didn’t cease,
You fought for freedom, you stood for right,
You put your lives on the line, every day and every night.

From sea to shining sea,
You protected our land, so we could be free,
You sacrificed your families, your friends, your dreams,
So we could live ours, without fear, it seems.

You marched through hail and storm,
You faced a myriad of dangers, yet you kept warm,
You crossed many seas, traveled many miles,
You climbed mountains, and walked through the Nile.

You served with honor, with pride, with heart,
You played your roles, each playing a different part,
You flew planes, drove tanks, or sailed upon ships,
You persevered through hardships, never losing your grips.

You battled on land, air, and sea,
You fought for our values, for our democracy,
You served our country, you proved your worth,
You gave us a priceless gift, your courage, and your mirth.

On this day, we honor you, we salute you all,
For answering the call, for standing tall,
For being a shining example, of service and of love,
We thank you for all that you did, and for all that you’ve become.

We thank you for our freedom, our liberty, and our peace,
We thank you for our future, for our hope, and our release,
We thank you for your sacrifice, your courage, and your will,
We thank you for your leadership, your kindness, and your skill.

We will never forget your bravery, your dedication, and your grace,
We will always be grateful, for your service, and your place,
We will always remember the debt we owe, the debt we can’t repay,
To the veterans of our country, Happy Veterans’ Day!
