America’s Veterans

Free Veterans Day PowerPoint Background (4)

Comrades of service bound to protect
have made honorable sacrifices
too great to neglect.

Countless Americans devoted to give
their lives to preserve the freedoms
with which we live.

Our men and women assigned to
precarious places
have born witness to and fought against
mankind’s disgraces.

Liberty sought for, regardless the cost;
lives challenged and fortified,
lives spilled out and lost.

Whether trained for the air, or land,
or at sea,
many have served that we may be free.
