Nate’s Monday Morning Message
Welcome to this week’s Monday Morning Message…today we honor those brave men and women who have sacrificed their lives so that we may call our great country, “Home of the Free.” To those who maybe reading this, that have served in the military, let me be the first today to say thank you. Without your service, we would not have this day to celebrate. Happy Veteran’s Day! Let’s make it a great week!
The Best on Earth: A Veteran’s Day Tribute
Written by Joanna Fuchs
If someone has done military service,
They earn the title “veteran,” and more;
They earn our deep respect and admiration;
That they are special no one can ignore.
They sacrificed the comforts we enjoy;
The list is long of all the things they gave.
Our veterans are extraordinary people;
They’re loyal, dedicated, true and brave.
When terror and invasion were real threats,
They showed us they could handle any storm.
We owe our freedoms and our very lives
To our veterans, who served in uniform.
Our veterans should be celebrities;
They’re exceptional; no other group compares.
We’re grateful for the many things they’ve done;
They’re always in our hearts and in our prayers.
We owe our veterans support and friendship;
Let no one ever question what they’re worth.
These men and women served us and our country,
Our veterans–the very best on earth.
