Thank You Veteranscountry as flag
Thank you veterans of the Red, White, and Blue,
our heroes who defend America,
We proudly salute you!

You are the rock and foundation,
the reason America is a proud and free nation.

Thank you Veterans...

For answering your country's call,
America owes you,
for your gift of freedom to us all.

Thank you Veterans...

For putting your life on hold,
so another can be born,
and we have a chance to grow old.

Thank you Veterans...

For sacrificing your life to guarantee,
our freedoms so that we can live in liberty.

You are America's voice,
because of you we have the option,
to make a choice.

Thank you Veterans...

For being brave and taking a stand,
keeping us safe here on our home land.

You make the difference for the world to see,
that you paid the price,
For our freedom that isn't free.

Thank you Veterans...

For all you've done,
your duty, honor and commitment,
is how freedom is won.

You are the proud, the brave and the few,
not just today but everyday,
America salutes you!
