From One to Another

To say “thank you” may seem self-serving
But please don’t take it that way
For the sacrifices some have made
Should be recognized on this day

Ready to put their lives on the line
When they heard the bugle’s call
Because some things are worth dying for
For the benefit of us all

I hold for them the highest esteem
For the duty felt inside
With no goal of self-recognition
Though it fills them with inner pride

So from one veteran to another
Though self-serving it may be
Thank you for what you’ve done for us all
Thank you for keeping us all free
