Ode to the Veterans

Here’s to the men and women
who answered the call to fight
and defend our freedom
against evil and tyranny.

Here’s to those who signed up
and those who were drafted
they could have turned away but they refused
they knew that they were needed

Here’s to those who served our country
as pilots, drivers, and cooks
they gave everything they had
they went above and beyond the call

Here’s to those who fought
and defended our country
some returned home to their families
and some gave their lives completely

The price of liberty is never cheap
we must be vigilant at all times
we must never forget the people
who took up arms and fought for our freedom
