You have risked your lives for freedom,
You defend, respect, and honor our country.
The commands you took,
To the ability to fight,
Helped you to defend our country.
The stars and stripes are flying in your honor.
Peace in this country is all from you.
We thank you very much
If it wasn’t for you
We wouldn’t be here today.
In school, being able to write and read,
And so much more.
You are the best we could ever wish for.
And always be the best you can be.

My grandpa influenced me to write this poem. Also all of the veterans and people that are fighting in the war right now for our freedom.
