This Monday, November 12, is Veterans Day (observed, the 11th is the actual day). In honor of all who have served in our Armed Forces, and those who serve today, we offer this Tribute to Veterans, and say thank you for your service to America from all of us at the Car Pro Show.
- It is the VETERAN not the preacher, who has given us freedom of religion.
- It is the VETERAN not the reporter, who has given us freedom of the press.
- It is the VETERAN not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.
- It is the VETERAN not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to assemble.
- It is the VETERAN not the lawyer, who has given us the right to a fair trial.
- It is the VETERAN not the politician, who has given us the right to vote.
- It is the VETERAN who salutes the Flag,
- It is the VETERAN who serves under the Flag.
ETERNAL REST GRANT THEM O LORD, AND LET PERPETUAL LIGHT SHINE UPON THEM. May God Bless them all!
**We offer this poem to all who have served and are currently serving**
Let’s honor our military,
The men and women who serve,
Whose dedication to our country
Does not falter, halt or swerve.
Let’s respect them for their courage;
They’re ready to do what’s right
To keep America safe,
So we can sleep better at night.
Let’s support and defend our soldiers,
Whose hardships are brutal and cruel,
Whose discipline we can’t imagine,
Who follow each order and rule.
Here’s to those who choose to be warriors
And their helpers good and true;
They’re fighting for American values;
They’re fighting for me and you.
Finally, a listener sent me this very moving video. I would encourage you to spend a few minutes watching, it really brings it into perspective.
