VETERANS DAY 2008
by Donna F. Miller
It unfurls and blows in the Autumn sky
This flag of ours we've hoisted high.
The eagle flies in the bursting dawn
A symbol of now and days bygone.
The soldiers rise and greet the day
Some may laugh and some may pray.
The choice is theirs to make the call.
A land of the free gives the choice to all.
The flag, the eagle, the USA
Are hope in action every day.
Thank you Vets for making it so
For protecting our dreams from every foe.
For risking your lives and doing your parts
Americans thank you from our hearts.
