Hello. Benjamin From Brother’s Campfire here. Today, I would like to give honor to our veterans who served in all branches of the U.S. military.
I get choked up when I think about the price men paid to make our country great. On December 7th, 1941, 2,403 men made the ultimate sacrifice.
In Chapter 85 of the Ongoing Tale, titled The Lady From The Harbor, Galvin the Bard honored veterans and I pulled a poem from the story. It is fictional but has meaning.
Venerable Veterans, I look at the lattice and am reminded of arbor,
And look at fine faces and think about harbor.
Our defenses were down and dragons did fly.
The attack was unexpected, we were surprised,
Fire and mayhem beset each ship and each sail.
Men drowned and did burn flesh melded to mail.
Men lost and trapped in water below Tried to escape and lost their air flow.
The tapping from under was heard from attop,
For weeks it went on, then it did stop.
A lady she stood at the dock and did greive.
She lifted a torch and shouted. Freedom, Believe!
We gathered together in saddened remorses.
Assembled ourselves and mustered our forces.
We went to the land from whence fear did assail,
Demanding victory we put boot in dragon’s tail.
We encountered the fierce,
and we were much fiercer
We cut down the cowards
with sharp pointed piercers!
It is an honor to honor you fine veteren men,
Invite me next year and I’ll honor you again.
To all branches of the military, Thank you for your service.
