"WHAT IS A VETERAN"
What is a veteran? Just look around
Right where you're standing, he fought for that ground.
A vet is a person who answered the call, who went into war and gave it his all.
He defended a way of life that we love, but much preferred peace like the way of a dove.
He asked not the reason as he stood in the trench.
He faltered not once in the muck and the stench.
As soldiers in legions, they stood side by side,
They knew some would fall, as many more died.
They whispered their prayers in a helmet of sweat,
Shells bursting above wouldn't let them forget.
Tears in their eyes, as their friends lay so still.
One hour ago, he was king of the hill.
Many more wounded, spilling of life.
When will it end, this battle of strife?
For many the battles never will end, now they are civilians and find they can't blend.
Some are disabled, and some are disturbed.
After coming from hell, they find they've been curbed.
A veteran is special, to be not denied, He put it up frount, he need never hide.
Now is the time to honor our vets.
Remember their pain, don't ever forget.
Remember them now, and give them their due.
Stand by there side, cause they did it for you.
Here are a few of my favorite links to Military and Goverment Sites,
which I hope you will enjoy browsing through as much as I have.
Since I've been discharged from the U.S.MARINE CORPS(1970)I have been
envolved with several of the Veterans Organizations, which I am a Life Member of the
V.F.W., DAV, and also of the Purple Hearts, I have added a few links that I think
all veteran's will find very informative and interesting to browse through.
This part of my page is new, I will be adding links to Veteran's Personal Web Sites
so please feel free to browse through the links of other veteran's
If you would like to have your Veteran's Site added to this list please let me know
and I would be happy to add it.
