Veterans Day, 2014

In the quiet of a cold night, men and women keep watch
Below the waves and beneath the stars they stand vigil
In the heat of a sweltering summer day they serve
From the Artic Circle to remote islands
From grand parades to isolation
Our Veterans remind us
We are one
Under God

They serve
Wherever sent
Fear and courage both
Friendships and families each
They learn to trust, they grow older
Some do not see the end and are remembered
For most it is a transition to another life, full and rich
But service to our common good - binds us all in solid bond
