1. THANK A VETERAN
Make sure you find a US Veteran, look them in the eye and thank them for their service!
WWII – NORMANDY BEACH – JUNE 1944 D-DAY INVASION – SUPPLIES COMING ASHORE:
We get a feeling when we see the American flag raised, the national anthem played, and our men and women in uniform saluting. Children look up and put their hands over their hearts. Men take off their hats. For a moment, we are united.
Because of You by Roger Robicheau …
You put it on the line for us
We won’t forget, you are A-Plus
This country stands because of you
Your service seals red white, and blue
No better troops embrace this earth
Thank God for you, our greatest worth
We pray for you both night and day
God be with you along your way
You wear your uniform with pride
And use your skills, so well applied
The rank you hold does mean one thing
You’re a GI and you are first-string
Be well assured we back you strong
How proud we say ‘that you belong’
Without your will – to walk the walk
We’d have no right – to talk the talk
