Today, we honor our veterans, worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect their country.
We pray that You will bless them, Lord, for their unselfish service in the continual struggle to preserve our freedoms, our safety, and our country’s heritage, for all of us.
Bless them abundantly for the hardships they faced; for the sacrifices they made; for their many different contributions to America’s victories, over tyranny and oppression.
We respect them, we thank them, we honor them, we are proud of them, and we pray that, You will watch over these Special People, and bless them with peace and happiness.
“When you see someone in a uniform,
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,
“Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.
“Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
"Thanks for what you’re doing
To keep us safe in the USA!”
“Let's honor our military,
The men and women who serve,
Whose dedication to our country
Does not falter, halt or swerve.
“Let's support and defend our soldiers,
Whose hardships are brutal and cruel,
Whose discipline we can't imagine,
Who follow each order and rule.
“Here's to those who choose to be warriors
And their helpers good and true;
They're fighting for American values;
They're fighting for me and you.”
Happy Veterans Day!
Grateful and Victorious Velma
