A Veteran’s Day Remembrance

Our sons, our brothers:
Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines,

And all who fought for faith and country
Who rest ‘neath fields of green

We honor you this day too meanly;
How often we forget,
The struggle, toil, and tears of those
Who gave without regret.

So let us now with solemn vigor
Stand with those who remain,
Aid all who heard the call of duty
And answered with their names.


“No greater love hath a man than this: that he lay down his life for his friends.”
– John 15:13
