Veterans Day By Roger W Hancock

My life has been part of the military before it even began and it seems as though it wont stop anytime soon. My Grandfather who died in 1999 and served in the Navy from 1937 -1945 he then joined the Marines and served from 1946 - 1976. My Grandfather's brother served in the Navy from 1936 - 1941 and got killed in Pearl harbour. My father is a marine and joined in 1972 and has only just recently stopped deploying. My brother is now also a marine and so is my boyfriend.

I think it's important to remember the people that went befor us to lay the foundations that we work with today. Every person past and present in every branch of the military and special forces thank you for what you have done for this country i know it's not easy but you did it with pride and you did it with loyalty you are all heros even though you all dont think you are but you are!! you fought for us for our freedom and i personally will always be grateful! so thank you to all of you

Veterans Day -by Roger W Hancock

We honor you, who fought for us,

for country’s sake of freedom’s plight.

You kept the greatest country great,

by sacrifice of you who served.

Honor to military, soldiers served.

There seems no risk in peace to serve.

When war breaks the silent peace,

no peace when security cease.

Sacrifice of civilian life,

careers succumb to enlist, or draft.

Families wait in fear, in prayer,

for loved ones return alive, not dead.

Returned Heroes and those deceased,

we honor, thank, though insufficient.

Parades, programs, our pride convey,

we honor you on Veterans Day.

It's about sacrifice, and service and our freedom paid for, at the highest cost one can pay. It's personal! The Poppy is a sign of respect and of the deepest los…
