To honor every veteran for their service to our country -
A VETERAN'S CREED
As a veteran, I have served with the finest
in peacetime and war, where ever the need.
As a veteran I will stand tall and proud
to honor the fallen, it's a veteran's creed.
I will honor the living, those who survived
a war-torn hell not of their own making;
who fought for freedom whatever the cost,
when their hearts were silently breaking.
I will shake the hand of an old soldier
and will look deep into his eyes to see
the pride that he feels to be remembered
for his part in the ongoing fight for liberty.
As the early morning sun rises, I will greet
another day and be thankful for my life.
At the setting of the sun, I will salute
the flag that waves freely, far from strife.
