“America,

My Father’s pride.

Oh, how he loved to serve by your side.

Fathers, Sons, and Daughters too,

Laid their lives down to fight for you.

 

If truth be told, they’d tell you so,

If called to arms, they’d willingly go.

The proud, the strong, integrity bound,

In serving you,

America was found.”

  1. Thank you. As a daughter of a veteran and granddaughter of veterans. I am grateful that Remembrance Day 11/11 is to remember all who fought, all who gave their lives in ALL COUNTRIES of the world The first World war took thousands of our young men to fight and die in foreign fields leaving behind devastated farms, grieving animals and grieving families. The Call to protect the weak and helpless began the Nation AUSTRALIA which I am proud to call my homeland but she and all the great Southlands of the Pacific are remembered on 11/11 along with every other life lost in tragic conflicts all around the globe even those of the then enemy. The innocent fought not for glory but because they answered the Call of their Homeland. Peace after sorrows should be our life goals.

      1. Me too Denise, my grandfather has purple heart from WW2. We need to respect those who fought for our freedoms, many died or returned maimed and wounded. We need to honor their fight for us.
