2018 Veterans Day Salute To Those Who Have Served

veterans american flag

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.


**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.

    Jerry, Thank you so much for this wonderful tribute to our veterans. I am pastor of Hosanna Community Church in Tomball, Texas. I served as a chaplain in the United States Army from June of 1967 to February of 1970. I served in the Republic of South Vietnam from June of 1968 to June of 1969. The hardest part of my tour of duty there was not being shot at, but rather the 50 or so memorial services I conducted for my fellow fallen soldiers. My sermon this Sunday on Veterans Day is entitled “Remember Me”. There is a weakness in human nature. We take for granted the blessings and contributions that others make who have remembered us and taken care of us. We need to remember the blood that has been shed by our brave veterans that enable us to enjoy our many freedoms. In a like manner, we need to remember the greatest of all sacrifices — Jesus’ death on the cross!

    Thanks again, Jerry. I listen to your Car Pro radio broadcast nearly every Saturday. I really appreciate you and Kevin. Ask Kevin if her remembers Tim Phillips from Wichita Falls. Tim was my brother who died last year and he once told me that he and Kevin were good friends.
