Our Proud US Veterans

 
Veterans Day - November 11th
 
 
 
 
 
We Stood For Freedom


We stood for freedom just like you
And loved the flag you cherish too

Our uniforms felt great to wear
You know the feel, and how you care

In step we marched, the cadence way
The same is true with you today

Oh how we tried to do our best
As you do now, from test to test
 
 
How young we were and proud to be
Defenders of true liberty

So many thoughts bind soldiers well
The facts may change, not how we jell


Each soldier past, and you now here
Do share what will not disappear

One thought now comes, straight from my heart
For soldiers home, who've done their part

I'm honored to have served with you
May Godly peace, help get you through

And now I'll end with a request
Do ponder this, while home at rest

America, respect our day
Each veteran, helped freedom stay


Roger J. Robicheau

The Veteran


We Serve our hitch for what's at stake
Our hold on freedom must not break

The cost is sometimes hard to face
As each might lose the human race

This fact is known from day one on
Some pray for courage, dawn to dawn

A worthy soldier stands up tall
And wants to feel support from all

One day a rank is left behind
To be reclaimed by youthful mind

The Veteran takes home a view
Of lessons learnt, both good and blue

God saw right in each faithful eye
A Patriot, with love held high

 How We Recall

 
How we recall that day we swore
To serve our country to the core
 
That clothing issued brought a view
Of raw recruits, this showed so true
 
Remembered hair was cut away
This look for quite awhile would stay
 
Our trek before too long did show
New GI's marching, row by row
 
And then one day emerged a form
Each proud trained troop in uniform
 
We followed orders as we should
To do our best, in pride we would
 
Some served in peace, some went to war
Brave heroes passed through Heaven's door
 
We cherished friends who served with us
Great buddies all, how we'd discuss
 
So many thoughts will never wane
For what we shared, let closeness reign
 
Our bond was tight, the best to see
For when we served, this had to be
 
The purpose was to keep you free
God Bless the brave, deservedly

When  Grown We Marched

 

We learned to play Go Fish and War
Each game of cards did never bore

How proud we rode, our bikes stood up
When chain guard off, pant leg rolled up

Great friends we made, some became pals
What an awesome pool of guys and gals

Some sports we loved; boy, was that true
As a matter of fact, I still do

The Palmer Method was taught in school
And so much more, some actually cool

We loved the summer, winter too
With sneakers or boots, we got through

When time was right, we learnt to drive
Don't ask me how, we did survive

When grown we marched, our pride was true
Our colors firm, red white and blue

Now others march, they take their turn
God Bless them, how they so well learn

They know their job, they do excel
America, support them well

They stand for us where sent to serve
This fact we should all know, observe
