The VETERAN took the very same oath of office as the president and all members of Congress. But the VETERAN honored theirs. Thank you vets for your service and your sacrifice.. God Bless America and those who serve!!
Thank a VET today they earned it,
The Faces of Freedom
To you they’re a neighbor,
a relative or a friend
or maybe the cop, the postman
or the doctor who mends
or they may be the tailor
the nurse or the teacher
they may work at the car-wash
perhaps even your preacher.
They may live in large mansions
or exist on the street
they may be living the good life
or just making ends meet.
But they all have one thing in common
yes, they all have one common thread
they’ve served their country with honor
and perhaps they served in your stead.
You see, theirs are the faces of freedom
and the protectors of all we hold dear
so give them your thanks for that service
if but only, this one day a year.
