A great war had been fought,
Blood was shed and lost
Our freedom at life’s price bought
A hefty sum it cost
No price too high to break every chain
For the weak and oppressed
Ultimate sacrifice, death fear and pain
Courage under fire expressed
The minotaur charged, the arrows did fly,
The dragons their fire did bring.
Forward marched evil, enslavement they cried,
To them we said, Let Freedom ring!
We fought all their imps, goblins and orcs
and sent them limping home butt in sling
We toasted to liberty popping out corks
Our warriors roared Let Freedom Ring!
We looked at death square in the eye
We roll up our sleeves and we fight
There’s an eagle screams in the sky
Victory to all that’s right.
Today we honor the veterans of war
And stand in remembrance reverent
Thank you to those near and far
Our respect we give most benevolent.

I think the poppies are a nice touch to end with.
Thank you, Sir
You are a Warrior and a Patriot. We honor you and your service to our great nation. I am humbled that you would warm your hands at the Campfire!
Like most other Veterens I have seen things that most people will never see. I will never forget what these eyes have seen. Some was good. Others bad. Serving in the US Navy over in Vietnam was a wake up call for me.
Mr. Les, will you join our village of fiction?
Listening to your stories is quite the addiction.
From elders of war we long to learn,
What can we do, your follow to earn?
