Thank A Veteran!

Honoring  Veterans our Nation's HerosHe was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.

And ‘tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of he spoke.

But we’ll hear his tales no longer,
For ol’ Joe has passed away,
And the world’s a little poorer
For a Veteran died today.

He won’t be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won’t note his passing,
‘Tho a Veteran died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young,
But the passing of a Veteran
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician’s stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Veteran,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever-waffling stand?

Or would you want a Veteran
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Veteran,
Who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Veteran,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his likes again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Veteran’s part,
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he’s here to hear the praise,
Then at least let’s give him homage
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:
“OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING,
A VETERAN DIED TODAY.”

PLEASE pass On The Patriotism! YOU can make a difference.
If you are proud of our Vets, then share this with them. You’ll be glad you did.

MILLION VETERAN MARCH

million Veteran March washington dcThousands of Patriotic Veterans, from all over the country, made A historic descent on Washington DC arriving at 8:00 AM on Sunday, October 13, 2013 to demonstrate their opposition to the Obama administration’s cruel attempt to deny American Veterans access to open air war memorials and for playing politics with Veterans and deceased Combat Veterans!!   In the below listed E-mail you can view revealing photos that the left of center liberal media establishment will cover up to prevent the American people from knowing how deep the opposition is to the Obama administration’s treatment of Veterans, combat personnel “Killed In Action”, and the families of fallen heroes who had financial support intentionally stripped from them.  In the below listed photos, you will be able to see a Veteran without legs taking down the illegally placed barricades erected by the Obama administration at the open air WWII Memorial, and see Veterans lawfully assembled to express their opposition to the anti-military policies of the Obama administration. 

 

Governor Sarah Palin, Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Mike Lee, Capt Larry Bailey, USN (Ret) (SEAL) of Special Operations Speaks, Congressman Kerry Bentivolio, SFC/MI-ANG, (R-MI-11) an endorsed Combat Veterans For Congress, Gathering of Eagles, Move America Forward, Tea Party Groups, Veterans in wheelchairs, and thousands of Veterans were at the stunningly successful rally at the open air WWII Memorial; some Veterans went on to remove barricades from the US Marine Corps Iwo Jima Memorial, other Veterans removed barricades from the Lincoln Memorial.  Some of the metal barricades were carried by Veterans to The White House and leaned against the fence. The Obama administration reported that they fully intend to put all the barricades back up after the Veterans depart.

 

In order to insure the Veterans were able to attend the rally, bobtail truckers and 4 wheel vehicles participating in the Truckers Ride for the Constitution drove through Washington DC to the WWII Memorial blowing their horns in support, while individuals cheered in support.  Police Officers saluted the Veterans, Park Rangers did their best to be polite & helpful, and hundreds of ordinary American Citizens helped the Veterans dismantle the illegally place  metal barricades on public sidewalks and roadways that were erected by the Obama administration to prevent the freedom of assembly guaranteed to all Americans by the US Constitution.
