On Veteran's Day we honor them,

Our liberty we owe to them.

Thanks to Them

                         by Roger W Hancock


Thanks to them who as young men,

Left family, loves, and friends.

Normal carefree lives now stay.

To learn a warrior’s way.


Thanks to them who’s lives begin,

Childhood cut short, adults become.

Responsibility in them begin,

For service to their fellow man


Thanks to them, our young ladies,

Who served as much as well.

All capacities to serve,

Honor earned, our honor owed


Thank you for your service boy,

Now in pride I call you man.

Discipline for your deploy,

To follow orders others plan.


Thanks to them on battlefield,

Youth long passed just yesterday.

Growing up in a moments time,

Strength of man inside revealed.


Thanks to them our armed forces,

Who enable peace at home.

Thanks to them that gave up youth,

To serve for those back home.


Thanks to them who gave their lives,

May God . . . grant long liberty.

Thanks to them with wounded lives,

May God, grant strength to live.


Thanks to them, now Veterans,

Honor we give, yet owe much more.

Honored segment of society,

Our duty to thank your duty served.


Thanks to them can never pay,

Sacrifice of life and limbs.

Nothing ever we can say,

cannot, their sacrifice, repay.


Thanks to them, our servicemen,

Backbone of America’s might.

Thanks to them, continued strength,

Thanks to them, yet owe much more.

Veterans Day

               by Roger W Hancock


We honor you, who fought for us,

for country’s sake of freedom’s plight.

You kept the greatest country great,

by sacrifice of you who served.


Honor to military, soldiers served.

There seems no risk in peace to serve.

When war breaks the silent peace,

no peace when security cease.


Sacrifice of civilian life,

careers succumb to enlist, or draft.

Families wait in fear, in prayer,

for loved ones return alive, not dead.


Returned Heroes and those deceased,

we honor, thank, though insufficient.

Parades, programs, our pride convey,

we honor you on Veterans Day.

         It’s The Veteran

                         by Roger W Hancock


Backbone of liberty; fighting to keep us free,

sacrifice homeland safety; battles fought abroad.

First Veterans; founding fathers,

gave to us our freedom’s liberty.


‘Twas not the preacher, campus organizer,

who fought for religions free . . . free assembly.

Veterans fought for your assembly, worship free.


It was not the lawyer, politician,

who gave your right to vote . . . trials fair.

Veterans fought for your voice, equal treatment.


Nor was it the poet, reporter,

that fought for free press . . . free speech.

Veterans fought for unbiased news, talk. . . fear free.


Saluting the flag under which he serves,

Veteran’s foundation sacrifice.

Freedom mortared by brave blood spilt . . .

maintains our liberty rights.

Family Soldier
           by Roger W Hancock

A man loved his family best,
for them to war he left.
Diligence within each task,
performed his duty well.

“Mature and Optimistic,
said platoon commander.
Sense of humor with no nonsense,
pushed to get jobs done.

Family man loved to brag,
of awesome wife and son.
Diligence stepped up a notch,
after a family cyber visit.

Once asked, “Why a soldier?”
“I do it for my family.”
When without fear you walk a mall,
“… I have done my job.”

Respect Owed
    by Roger W Hancock

This liberty that I enjoy,
granted not be taken.
The liberty that I enjoy,
I owe to those who paid.


The privilege that I enjoy,
its cost was paid by blood,
Those who fought for free,
now lost, will never see.


Their loss is my gain,
respect is surely owed.
Liberty of rights,
are sealed within their death.


I will not burn the flag,
the veteran I will not spat.
I owe to those who paid the cost,
and respect the waving flag.


I am not a veteran,
I have never served.
I owe to those who gave their lives,
that I be free this day.

 To Remember them on Veteran's Day
   We All Owe Thanks - a commentary by Roger W Hancock

We all owe thanks to the military and our veterans. 

It is the Veteran and those who now serve that sacrifice for our society.  At the rate we pay our military it is a financial sacrifice to serve. That is the least of the sacrifices they make to which I am forever grateful.  

It is upon their sacrifices that allow me the freedom to write without government scrutiny.

It is upon their sacrifices that allow me the liberty to come and go as I please.

It is upon their sacrifices that allow me my children to raise as I see fit.

It is upon their sacrifices that those I oppose who burn the flag,  may do so in ignorant liberty.

It is upon their sacrifices that allow distortion of the truth in our mainstream media.

Their sacrifices enable the liberty for good and bad, but they are not to blame.

Those who protest our military do not understand the responsibility that is required to exercise true liberty.  Liberty is maintained by responsible freedom.  Freedom without responsibility is the exercise of fools. Those who exercise freedom without responsibility, exercise stupidity. Such is their right. Rights provided and protected by those who serve in the military.

So I on behalf of those fools and idiots, do hereby pay honor and tribute to those Men and Women who do now and have served in our armed forces.  I thank you on behalf of those who are too narrow minded to realize the thanks they owe to you, our military and veterans.
