Veteran's Day

Please remember the sacrifices made by our Veteran's. Please keep our military in your prayers as they risk life, limb, and sanity.


You need not ever know my name
This unknown soldier seeks no fame

I'm here to bring out thought from you
May your heart see more than your eye can view

America, we marched with pride
We gave our life, for you we died

How well we knew the time might come
When life could sound that final drum

Please think of us as life moves on
We tried so hard till that last dawn

Do let our spirit fill the land
Pass treasured freedom hand to hand

God Blessed this country with such love
Hold in your heart abundance of

And when you stand before my grave
Think not of one, but each who gave

  1. Beautiful, Eileen...That video and poem, they are so moving...I want to cry for them all. I pray that the Lord has a special blessing for each and every man and woman that has served in our military...may He be with them now, as they fight our enemies. They need our prayers...prayers for their safety until they can come home again.

    God bless..thanks for sharing and giving our vets this wonderful tribute today.


  2. Beautiful, Eileen! This just sends chills down my spine. They played TAPS at my next door neighbor's funeral. He was a captain in the Navy and had been in charge of the Caribbean fleet at some point. Just a precious man. They also played TAPS at my first cousin's funeral, (Lt. Col. US Air Force). So I have a deep and abiding respect for the military.

    Love to you...



  3. Hi Dear Eileen. Oh what a wonderful post. Very moving and God bless America and all of our armed service men and women.
    Thank you so much for your sweet comments about my server. I love olden things and the older I get the more I appreciate them.

  4. I bow to all veterans worldwide. If it wasn't for their unselfishly courageous contribution to protect and defend us, we wouldn't be able to enjoy this blissful day. Thank you darling for posting this special day and thank you for the lovely comment you left for me, you are a dear friend.

    Love & Hugs
