October 5, 2013 - I hope the video illustrating my poem, "Veterans", reminds fellow Americans that the men and women, who served our beloved, great USA in Her armed forces ... are so very deserving of our deepest gratitude and respect for their proud, brave duty to country!
And as a father of a U.S. Marine Corps veteran ... my pride in him for serving including his deployment to Iraq in 2003 ... will never diminish ... as it is the same for my father, father-in-law, and my mother's twin brother who was KIA during the Normandy invasion.

While there have been and are many patriots who made the USA what She has become and remains today, there should be no doubt about how far our great nation has come to be through the bravery of those who honorably served all in the military with some taking the ultimate fall and the others carrying on with civilian life when their duty was done.
They are America's veterans who were there for us each day, like our valiant troops do so now, safeguarding our great, beloved USA against all who dared to cause Her harm.
So, let us all stand proudly tall on Veterans Day . . . giving thankful praise in remembrance of their noble deeds for sake of America's security needs.
