For America's Heros on Armed Forces Day, May 20, 2006

Here's something I received today from a fellow veteran and thought it would be good to share with everyone on this Armed Forces Day!

For those who have laid in fox holes, carried guns, marched for hours,
For those who have had cold sleepless nights,endless days of discomfort,
For those who have endured the agony of war for my sake,

Thank you.

For those who have gently kissed a loved one goodbye,
and with a tear looked back for a last time,
For those who have found courageto carry the sword of liberty,
For those who have flown with the eagle,
For those who have landed on foreign soil,
Taking freedom to other countries while keeping freedom in ours,

Thank you.

For those who have lost limbs,lives and loved ones,
For those who have lost friends, sisters, brothers, mothers, and fathers,
For those who have sacrificed and gave their all for freedom's sake,

Thank you.

For those who have found the courage to stand,
For those who have reached out a hand for their fallen comrade,
For those who give freedom to strangers ,and a hope for peace,
For those who sacrifice all they love, and pay the price for freedom,

Thank you.

This Armed Forces Day....to all the veterans who have protected our nation and our freedoms through the years, to all the men and women still serving around the world today, to all the family members here at home who faithfully and patiently await their return, and to each and every American who has supported our men and women in uniform without question,

Thank you!!!

Because without you....none of what we have today would be possible!
