Some of the sky falls
Man has forgotten .
He reads the tombstones ;
His eyes overflow -
many paid the price .
And yet , Man forgets
freedom that allows
buy another drink .
A long weekend off -
the blood of soldiers
for you and for me .
Go on ! Celebrate !
that right -
as for me, I will
thank our veterans :
For your sacrifice ,
Thank you .
freedoms I enjoy ,
your service ... Thank you .

|My deepest thanks, Karla, for your beautiful and sincere reminder that we honor them! We owe the young guys who died too young to know just why. And, let's give a snappy salute to the vets in hospitals and other treatment places. If only our Government would do right by those who stil live ! ! ! An old vet - Bill|
