They Did Their Share

November 11, 2012
By Joanna Fuchs , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

On Veteran's Day we honor

Soldiers who protect our nation.

For their service as our warriors,

Article Photos

They deserve our admiration.

Some of them were drafted;

Some were volunteers;

For some it was just yesterday;

For some it's been many years;

In the jungle or the desert,

On land or on the sea,

They did whatever was assigned

To produce a victory.

Some came back; some didn't.

They defended us everywhere.

Some saw combat; some rode a desk;

All of them did their share.

No matter what the duty,

For low pay and little glory,

These soldiers gave up normal lives,

For duties mundane and gory.

Let every veteran be honored;

Don't let politics get in the way.

Without them, freedom would have died;

What they did, we can't repay.

We owe so much to them,

Who kept us safe from terror,

So when we see a uniform,

Let's say "thank you" to every wearer.
