We Owe Them a Lot
a poem by Joanna Fuchs
"On Veterans Day we remember again our men and women who served;
we honor them now for what they did then: the liberties they preserved.
Let's never forget their sacrifice, the hard, heavy work they have done;
they did what was asked, crucial needs they fulfilled, with a telephone, pencil or gun.
We're happy and proud to honor them;
they gave so much more than they got.
Our heroes, our veterans kept freedom safe;
All of us owe them a lot."
