He went into the army because
He didn’t know what else to do.
He was in two years, nine months,
And three days. Does that count to you?
It was during a time of peace.
No, he didn’t have to serve in a war.
But that time in the army
Changed him to his very core.
Today is Veteran’s Day in the USA,
A time to honor our veterans’ sacrifice.
Some serve now, others are retired,
While many gave their very lives.
So, it’s important to recognize
All the men and women who gave
Of themselves to keep us free.
Today flowers went on many a grave.
Whether days, years, or a lifetime
Were spent in the service of country,
Today we reach out to say to you,
Thank you! Your sacrifice keeps us free.
God Bless Our Veterans.
Thank you, Bob!!
I’m glad I got to serve those last
9 months and 3 days with you!
I love Germany and the friends we made there.
And I loved teaching in the school on the army base.
Thanks to all our veterans!
Your sacrifice is sooo appreciated.
I will never take our freedom for granted.
Thanks for visiting JanBeek today.
See ya tomorrow.
