Happy Veterans Day!
When you see someone in a uniform,
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
“Thanks for what you’re doing
To keep us safe in the USA! ”By Joanna Fuchs
