Happy Veterans Day
A poem for today written by a fine young lady named Hannah for her brother Jake who recently graduated from boot camp as a Devil Dog Marine and is from now on a Veteran.
All He Can Be
By
Hannah Doherty
He keeps us safe at night in our beds,
guns on his back, helmet on his head.
He's a helping hand, you all can see,
That's my brother, he's all he can be.
He's not the boy you use to know
But you know that, he's let it show.
He's a soldier, he fights for us to be free,
He's going to war for you and for me.
He's someone everyone should look up to, right?
To be a Guardian, he wakes in the night.
He protects us all and battles bravely
that's my brother, he's all he can be.
Jake for your service
I thank you!
Thank A Vet Today!
