Thank a Veteran

by JLR

This day could be made so complete
Holding your hand out to shake
A hand of a citizen who sat in a hot seat.
Never mind if men or women, for goodness' sake!
Knowing smile, a nod, while walking Mainstreet.

Acknowledge they took their oath to serve!

Veiled in threat of life countered by the honor to serve the flag.
Eagerly, part of a team, for purpose, for freedom.
Trampling tyranny, each having worn a dog tag
Even during a time of Peace, America needs 'em
Resolutely bound by duty that has no price tag
Any common citizen should be happy to feed 'em
Never worry. Rare is it when you'll hear a veteran brag.
