They earn the title "veteran," and more;
They earn our deep respect and admiration;
That they are special no one can ignore.
They sacrificed the comforts we enjoy;
They showed us they could handle any storm.
We owe our freedoms and our very lives
To our veterans, who served in uniform.
They’re exceptional; no other group compares.
We’re grateful for the many things they’ve done;
They’re always in our hearts and in our prayers.
Let no one ever question what they’re worth.
These men and women served us and our country,
Our veterans--the very best on earth.
