Thank You for Your Service

Thank You for Your Service

I’m humbled by the folks that say
“Thank you for your service”
Some, just like me, went of free will
Some, by draft, to serve us.

The call to arms, that brought us forth
Despite what drove the call
Would lead us to a common cause
The cost to some was all.

Not all who shared the sacrifice
Were clothed in uniform.
The families, those left behind
Who oft’ the burden borne.

From those of us, to all of you,
Who chose to stand with us.
We offer you this humble praise
“Thank You for Your Service”

Chuck Wiser, Veterans Day 2015
