Veterans Day, 2011

They plunge into hell
For us and for our country
And some don’t come back

To every veteran
A salute of gratitude
For keeping us safe

And American Legion
Your ranks are true blue

To those in Iraq
We’ll see you soon — this year! How great
Is that going to be?

To the rest abroad
We pray your day will come, too:
A huge “Welcome Home”

We wish we could end
The world’s wars, once and for all.
Wouldn’t that be fine?

Till then, and beyond,
A grateful nation will not
Forget what you’ve done
