Veteran’s Day – A Collection of Past Tributes

I’ve always made an effort to do something geared toward the military on Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day in years past. A friend is currently stationed in Afghanistan right now, and was unable to get me something with which I could pay tribute to this holiday today. So, in it’s stead, I would like to link a number of past tributes that I’ve done, both here and at the Olde WoM.

Before I link them, a huge ‘Thank You’ to all those who gave time and effort on behalf of our Country, so that the rest of us could have the Freedoms and Liberties that we now enjoy. ‘Thank You’ also to the families who’s members sacrificed their lives for what we have. I realize that the ‘Thanks’ doesn’t come close to what we all feel, but it’s not physically possible for all of us to hug all of you.

Remember:

I knew a man called him Sandy Kane
Few folks even knew his name
But a hero was he
Left a boy, came back a man
Still many just don’t understand
About the reasons we are free

I can’t forget the look in his eyes
Or the tears he cries
As he said these words to me

All gave some and some gave all
And some stood through for the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall
Some gave all

Now Sandy Kane is no longer here
But his words are oh so clear
As they echo through out our land
For all his friends who gave us all
Who stood the ground and took the fall
To help their fellow man

Love your country and live with pride
And don’t forget those who died America can’t you see

All gave some and some gave all
And some stood through for the red, white and blue
And some had to fall
And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall
Some gave all

And if you ever think of me
Think of all your liberties and recall, yes recall
Some gave all

Some gave all
