A salute to the work our veterans did

To The Daily Sun,

The Work Our Veterans Did

To win the prize of freedom,
Timid actions will never suffice,
So they fought a revolution
And they gave our nation “LIFE.”

To trust the word of tyrants
Is a foolish guarantee,
So they paid the price in World War Two
And established “LIBERTY.”

And make no mistake, to clear the path
For triumph and success,
It cost a lot to insure for all
“THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.”

So let’s offer some heartfelt gratitude
In a manner direct and concise
To the men and women who answered the call,
And made the sacrifice.

May our spirit of recognition
And thankfulness always remain;
Because of the work our veterans did,
The world is a safer domain.
