Veterans of Past, Present and Future - Honor them this Thursday!

Thursday is Veteran's Day, some towns have parades and celebrations to honor our fighting men and women who have served this Country honorably. You want to plan to honor our troops, out of a stop-set with an imaging piece into a VET SONG.
Gather audio on-line by searching for Veteran's speeches, podcasts, recording Veteran's and taking the time to write some imaging pieces. The next post has links to audio from 2009. If you can't get the VETS, you can't on-side kick with these shorties from KZSN Wichita circa November 2003.

  1. A Tribute To Veterans
    In Vietnam, Korea and World Wars Past
    Our Men Fought Bravely so Freedom Would Last
    Conditions Where Not Always Best They Could Be
    Fighting a Foe You Could Not Always See:
    From Mountain Highs to Valley Lows
    From Jungle Drops to Desert Patrols
    Our Sinewy Sons Were Sent Over Seas
    Far From Their Families And Far From Their Dreams
    They Never Wrote Letters Of Hardships Despair
    Only Of Love, Yearning That One Day Soon:
    They Would Come Home, They Would Resume
    And Carry On With The Rest of Their Lives
    The P.O.W.’S Stood Steadfast
    Against the Indignities And Cruelties Of War
    They Could Not Have Lasted as Long as They Did
    If They Had Relinquished Their Hope That Some Day:
    They Would Come Home, They Would Resume
    And Carry On the Rest Of Their Lives
    Medics, Nurses, and Chaplains Alike
    Did What They Needed To Bring Back Life
    They Served Our Forces From Day Into Night
    Not Questioning If They Would Survive:
    They Mended Bones And Bodies Too,
    They Soothed the Spirits of Dying Souls
    And for Those M.I.A’S, Who Were Left Behind
    We Echo This Message Across the Seas
    We Will search For as Long As It Takes
    You’re Not Forgotten And Will Always Be:
    In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers,
    In Our Minds For All Time
    A Moment of Silence, a Moment of Summons
    Is Their Deliverance of Body And Soul
    To a Sacred Place That We All Know
    Deep In the Shrines of Our Soul:
    In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers
    In Our Minds For All Time
    These Immortalized Soldiers Whose Bravery Abounds
    They’re Our Husbands, Fathers, and Sons
    They Enlisted For the Duty at Hand
    To Serve the Cause of Country and Land:
    They Had Honor, They Had Valor,
    They Found Glory That Change Them Forever
    Men Standing Tall and Proud They be
    A Country Behind Them in a Solemn Sea
    So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly
    Unfurled in Their Majesty High:
    In the Sun, In the Rain
    In the Winds Across This Land
    Years of Tears Has Brought Us Here
    Gathering Around to Hear This Sound
    So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly
    Unfurled in Their Majesty High:
    In the Sun, In the Rain,
    In the Winds Across This Land
