Every day we salute you, on Veterans Day – We Thank You

Posted by on November 11, 2013 | Comments Off on Every day we salute you, on Veterans Day – We Thank You

Veterans Memorial Park Truth or Consequences New Mexico

What is a veteran?

A person whose heart
Is unquestionably true
To the country and her colors
The red white and blue

Whether a draftee or a volunteer
There was no hesitation,
determining fear
Or trepidation
In responding to the call of our nation

Whether at home or overseas
Whether in war or in intermittent times of peace
The veteran served with commitment and resolve
Which both mind and body would involve
The risk to both was always great
Requiring faith, suffering fate
The losses — lives and limbs and mental health —
A gift to us of their whole self.

To those brave men and women on this Veterans day
With grateful hearts to you we say
We miss you, we love you, and we thank you
Every single day.

And for those who still serve
On active duty and reserve
We pray
For your safety and health and families who wait

God bless in every way.
