A Letter to A Vet

Dear Veteran,

'Thank you' hardly seems adequate for everything you gave up

For time away from your family
For putting yourself in harm's way
Without question, without complaint, when your country asked.
For your triumphs
For your losses
For showing the rest of the world the best of the world
For being there
Whether it was yesterday
Or 75 years ago

We appreciate everything you did, everything you do.

We haven't forgotten.
Thank you isn't enough.
But, thank you.
Your Country
Superheroes don't wear capes.
They wear dog tags.
