Thank you

A veteran is to be thanked

Belief in war not necessary

Especially Vietnam's vets

Boys with no choice

Shipped off to die

Thank them when seen

Hug and give a smile

The trauma they have seen

The friends they have lost

The diseases they carry

The hearts that were broken


They were boys

I was told yesterday by one

Only 11,000 still alive 

The number is around 850,000

Over 9 million served in some capacity

2.7 million in uniform

An entire generation sent to die

Thank them whenever you see them
