To The Veterans

To The Veterans

A Poem by Wolfe Greytome

Just a quick little piece in Honor of the men and women of the military.


To the soldiers, old and new,

To the lost ones of your crew,

For the strife that you subdue,

For the rights that you renew,

For all that you go through,

This is just to say - Thank You!

I love this! Even though I've never been in the Navy/Army/Etc. (and I have no intention to, I'd be to much of a scardy cat) I have family that has. There are no words for what those men and women see and do for us on a daily basis. It makes me very proud to know that they are protecting us, something I don't think I could do myself!
This poem is more than beautiful, it is true and honest. (and I like the rhyming hehe) Astonishing!

These are words I'll take to heart. Thanks, I appreciate it. (US Navy 1967-1988)

Thanks for that! A lot of people don't know this, but it REALLY DOES mean a lot to veterans when they're thanked for serving the security of the United States; the security of their fellow Americans. It IS A PROUD FEELING to a veteran when others simply say, "Thank you for serving our country!" Those words literally stir up proud emotions inside us . . . You never know when a fighting American soldier might hear those heart-warming words of thanks for the very last time in his or her life. Fantastic, top-notch, award-winning poem you got there!

Nice tribute to the soldiers present and past. Short and to the point!

I love it! And my history teacher (a veteran of [I'm not sure what war]) likes it too. He would like to thank you for thinking of the veterans and writing this amazing poem.

There really isn't much to tell about me. I write poetry because I like to play with words. I am writing a series of fantasy novels because I got tired of the predictability of that genre. I tend to u.. more..
