Poem –

On Veterans Day we honor all

Who answered to a service call

Soldiers young and soldiers old

Fought for freedom, brave and bold

Some have lived while others died,

And all of them deserve our pride.

We’re proud of all the soldiers who,

Kept thinking of red, white and blue.

They fought for us and all our rights

They fought through many days and nights

And though we may not know each name

We thank all veterans just the same.

Taps will now be played by Karissa Harrison
