GOD BLESS OUR VETERANS
by Bayne Grubb
Not one gripe or complaint was uttered, not one favor was ever asked.
He proudly put on his uniform and did the job with which he was tasked.
When she was sent across the world, to face a fearsome, nameless foe,
she never hesitated, always willing and ready to go.
Though their loved ones were rightly concerned about them being over there,
they knew in their hearts, they were doing their parts, for freedom everywhere.
They couldn't let fear of tyranny and domination rule the world.
They planted the seeds of freedom each time Old Glory was unfurled.
They helped open the gates of liberty to those who were oppressed.
They guided them to freedom, like baby birds first leaving their nest.
They often gave their own lives so that others would be able to live.
Many made that ultimate sacrifice; what higher gift could they give?
I salute our courageous veterans, from the past, the future and today.
Your bravery and dedication represent the American way.
You make us proud and we'll say it aloud, as we take time to kneel and pray.
God Bless each of you for all that you do and God Bless the U.S.A.
