Editor, Times-Union:

Let us remember this Veteran’s Day

that the fight for freedom goes a long way back.

From islands in the Pacific, the jungles of Asia,

the mountains  of Afghanistan and the deserts of Iraq.

 Men and women of all races, religions and political parties,

made great sacrifices and  many did not come back.

Fighting  side by side for our freedoms today,

from the Pacific, Asia, Afghanistan and the deserts of Iraq.

This Veteran’s Day,

as you watch our flag so gloriously wave,

thank a veteran for their service in keeping America,

 “the land of the free and the home of the brave.”

Thank you veterans!
