Remembering Warriors on Veterans Day is to remember a Soldier's work. This Veterans' Day, don't forget to say thank you to a Veteran.

Keep On Soldier!

Did we sleep in ditches; did we go hungry so we could go on going; did we face the scourge of chemicals; did we break rocks and breathe sand; did we brave the cold, the heat, the blizzard?

Did we take a bullet in the head?
Did we carry 200 pounds for days on end; did we carry an injured friend, a fellow soldier from the valley to the mountain top? Did we miss our morning cup of coffee and our mindless chats with friends known and unknown? We did not; our Veterans, our Warriors did!

Our Heroes Our Soldiers!

Nothing but grateful thanks will do for this day and other days.
Let's have Veterans as our heroes for today and yesterday and any other day.

These are Warriors who have battled for us, got injured for us, got crippled for us, lost limbs for us, and died for us. How is it possible not to say thanks; how is it possible not to be grateful; how is it possible not to honor a Veteran!

Veterans are Warriors Who are Back!

Warriors are fundamentally protectors, not destroyers.
Whatever the reason maybe; it's NOT for us to delve into whys; we can only say thanks.

A Warrior does not have the privilege of saying no; he does not have the privilege of questioning; he does not have too many choices on the battlefield.

He does what he has to do; he did what he had to do.

Thank you Veterans!

All we can do is welcome him when he returns: scarred, from the battlefield. All we are required to do is help him heal. All we should do is be thankful to him for lifting our baggage when we chose not to do.

A Fight Well Fought!

It's not in vain
he fought
he is back
to remind us
of guts and gore
of pain and more
what he is
what he did
was not for him
but us


THANK YOU WARRIOR. YOU DID WELL!

Veterans Day or not Veterans Day, any time and anywhere, I thank any military man I meet for his service.

A wonderful tribute to our protectors here, Joyce.

Absolutely. Glad there are quite a few who understand these 'heroic guardians'. Thanks LR.

I knew there were a few members of my family who were in the service and then one day I thought about it and realized that there were more than just a few...
Papa was a fireman in the Navy during World War II
my aunt served for a short time before she got pregnant and then spent some 40 years with the VA
my uncle was drafted in Vietnam and served as a helicopter repairman spending 13 months over there
my older brother was a Marine reserve for a while
my youngest brother spent nearly 25 years in the Army with tours in Korea, Saudia Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq twice
my niece and her husband are currently serving in the Air Force Security Services. One of them recently returned from Afghanistan and the other one is scheduled to go first of the year...with her partner dog.

I'm sure there are others in the family but I'm not sure who and what; except that we have ancestors who fought all the way back to the Revolutionary War to help establish this country.

Here in Britain we have just celebrated Remembrance Sunday where we too remember our brave , fallen men and women in two World Wars and all the wars to date ...
We have so much to thank God for , for the lives of all who went into the horror of those dreadful wars for us so that we can live in relative peace and freedom , and not be under the tyranny of Dictators and despots today .
There will always be wars and rumours of wars in this world we live in , and so we must pray for those on the front line of conflict that peace will be restored before we are all blown to smithereens .
God bless you
Stella ><

I doubt the young lads of sixteen who trudged off to war in the trenches of the Great World Wars would have described themselves as Warriors Joyce .
Many thousands were barely out of school, and did not go with the armoury that we see soldiers of today brandishing.
However they marched out bravely into the massacre , and many thousands did not return.
For that , and our freedom today , I salute them .
More blessings
Stella ><
