Students Zachary F. and Garren T. write this poem in honor of all veterans on Veteran's Day.
Thank a Veteran
By Zachary F. and Garren T.
They have been fought here
They have been fought there
They have been fought in just about everywhere
With a sword and knife
From plane to ship
With grenades strapped to their hip
It’s not a movie or make believe
These men and women get hurt and bleed.
They lose their limbs, their sight and sound,
Spend most their time fighting from the ground.
Months on the go, no family around
People like this could not be found.
From the big city, to small, small towns
These selfless soldiers can be found.
Why do they do it some may ask,
Looking at the flag half mast
Not for the money, fame, or glory
It’s not for a different type of story.
Belief in something more than words
They fight with grit, with force and nerves
They defend this country more than we deserve
So when you wake and look around,
Think of those freedoms and when they’re found
On the backs of troops worldwide
We should always be by their side.
So thank a veteran,
Show the love.
