Honoring Our Veterans Contest - October 2023

Honor our veterans today;
You'll be glad to do it; each day
they fight for our country to try
To make it safer.

They're Committed to their cause;
They do their best to remind
Themselves about being brave
And loyal to their country.

Danger zones are scary, there's
Plenty of reason for doubt. Their
Courage Is commendable. It's
Harder to Get people from unsafe
Places to safety; their field of expertise
Is to be Praised. Say some prayers for
Our veterans, they will appreciate

In the air or on the ground, they are
Great to have around. What
Would we do without them? We
Need to express our voices freely
Without getting shot. Equality
Isn't having to worry about our health;
We're all important.

Our veteran's groove to the music
Coming from the Military Band. The
Melodies and tones are in sync with
The harmony in their songs; the
Accuracy in their pitch is appreciated;
It's great to see them smile!
