THIS PRAYER IS FOR OUR VETERANS

THOUGH THE POLITICIANS LOST OUR WARS,
OUR VETERANS NEVER DID.
FROM EL ALAMEIN TO ANZIO,
FROM NORMANDY TO THE RHEIN,
ON THE ISLANDS OF THE PACIFIC
AND THE RIDGES OF KOREA,
THROUGH THE JUNGLES OF VIETNAM
AND THE DESERTS OF ARABIA.
ON LAND, ON SEA, AND IN THE AIR.

THEY FOUGHT WHERE DUTY CALLED.

TO THOSE WE ARE SO LUCKY TO HAVE WITH US STILL,
THOSE WHO SURVIVED WAR'S HELL,
THE WOUNDED, DISABLED, ILL
GOD BLESS, AND THANK YOU.
WELL DONE!

AND WHILE WE HONOR OUR VETERANS,
FORGET NOT THOSE BY COUNTRY FORSAKEN;
THE PRISONERS OF WAR, THE MISSING IN ACTION,
FORLORN, DOOMED PAWNS, LONG LOST,
SAVE IN OUR MEMORIES.
GOD BLESS THEM, AND GOD FORGIVE US.

PLEASE, IN YOUR PRAYERS, REMEMBER THEM
WHO SAILED THE LAST VOYAGE,
FOUGHT THE LAST BATTLE,
FLEW THE LAST FLIGHT.
THEY DIED FOR YOU.

AND WITH DEEP RESPECT, THIS PRAYER IS FOR
THE MEN I SAILED WITH,
WHO WEIGHED ANCHOR FOR THE LAST TIME;
FOR THE MEN I FLEW WITH ,
WHO FLEW THE LAST MISSION.

GODKEEP
AMEN
Frank Tymon
