Welcome back to Lamon Reviews. Today we would like to thank all those who have and continue to serve our armed service.
There are many great veteran day posts. Here are just a few with wonderful book recommendations for both adults and children. Many of these books offer representation of diverse voices for our proud veterans.
I don’t know war
Or the pain of it.
All you’ve endured
My gratitude feels insufficient
So I weave it in words
And pray they are
A gift fit for a soldier.
“As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.”John F. Kennedy
“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”G.K. Chesterton
“The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men.”Minot J. Savage
“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don’t have that problem.”Ronald Regan
A veteran’s not a rookie.
A vet has paid his dues.
A veteran knows the hell of war
just nuanced in the news.A veteran loves his country.
With pride he greets its flag.
He stands up straight (still soldier-like)
although his shoulders sag.A veteran knows life’s precious.
Old memories make him cry.
He wonders why God let him live
when he watched others die.
This Veterans day remember the sacrifices our service members make for all citizens of this nation. Thank you all for your service.
And As Always…
