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.
 
 
 *************
 
 
Sincerely,
Your Country
