Read Some Famous Veterans Day Poems

Still A Soldier

I lay here today a soldier
I know some don't understand
I will try to explain
So maybe you can

I served my country
For many a year
I retired long ago
The soldier still here

I put on my uniform
I wore it to foreign lands
The soldier I was
Is still in the man

I have been a husband, father, and friend
To some of you here
But I've been a soldier all along
Even after so many a year

My final salute
I render today
I'm still a soldier
I'm just on my way

2. Invisible: co-written with C Devonshire

clad in rags, he wanders on Wall Street
   he is invisible to hustling stock brokers
       he is a man with no money, no property
          a hapless struggler of excessive loan burdens
 
bitter winter winds blow across Broadway
   he is invisible to affluent theatre-goers wearing warm winter coats
      he is a man who watches them scurry past the cardboard box that is his bed
        like a rain-dog, huddling in the shadows of alleys and doorways
 
he hears deafening explosions of New Year fireworks
    he is invisible to the revellers
       he is a man who cowers, recalling gunfire of a war he fought
         echoing through his mind in restless nights
           the incessant thumping of traumatic stress
 
he is invisible...a victim of post-Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq
    who once bore a uniform and served his country with pride 
       he is invisible suffering alone, paying the price 
         through severe disabilities and permanent scars
 
with sadness, he watches voters going to the polls
    he is invisible, a veteran with no voice in elections
        he is a man who cannot vote without an “address”
           a placard on a pavement might catch the eye
   
unemployed, homeless, unseen
    but most of all forgotten
       he is a man who seems invisible
          but he is still a man


-------------------------------------------------------------
This is co-written by Paul Callus & Carolyn Devonshire
in remembrance of our war veterans.

 

3. Veteran’s Day – 2015

Veteran’s Day - 2015


This day
	all flags
shed
	bloodied shadows
upon
	sacred soil
dotted
	with stilled crosses.

This day
parades
	weary soldiers

smile
	at the few who line the streets

march
	to familiar cadence

salute
	flag’s half mast history

weep
	as Taps resounds

across
	each generation’s tears.

This day
Peace
	will solemnly descend

upon those
	who kept her safe.

World War I ended on the 11th of November 1919. It is from this very day that the celebration of Veterans Day was started. But it was not called Veterans Day the; it was called Armistice Day. With the Armistice of Germany coming into effect, the day was marked as Armistice Day to honour those war veterans who lost their lives in WWI while fighting for their nation. After the end of the Second World War,

it was decided that Armistice Day be celebrated to honour and dignify not just World War I veterans but all war veterans who have fought for the freedom of their nation. So, in the year 1954, Congress amended the previous bill on declaring Armistice Day as a federal holiday and changed the name of Armistice Day to Veterans Day. Even when the day falls on a Saturday or a Sunday, people celebrate it on the adjacent Friday or Monday. All schools and federal offices remain closed on the day. Same goes for less important non-federal offices.

Famous Veterans Day Poems 

  1. The Best on Earth: A Veteran’s Day TributeIf someone has done military service,
    They earn the title “veteran,” and more;
    They earn our deep respect and admiration;
    That they are special no one can ignore.They sacrificed the comforts we enjoy;
    The list is long of all the things they gave.
    Our veterans are extraordinary people;
    They’re loyal, dedicated, true and brave.When terror and invasion were real threats,
    They showed us they could handle any storm.
    We owe our freedoms and our very lives
    To our veterans, who served in uniform.Our veterans should be celebrities;
    They’re exceptional; no other group compares.
    We’re grateful for the many things they’ve done;
    They’re always in our hearts and in our prayers.

    We owe our veterans support and friendship;
    Let no one ever question what they’re worth.
    These men and women served us and our country,
    Our veterans–the very best on earth.

2.  he Noble and the Brave: A Veteran’s Day Tribute

When America had an urgent need,
These brave ones raised a hand;
No hesitation held them back;
They were proud to take a stand.

They left their friends and family;
They gave up normal life;
To serve their country and their God,
They plowed into the strife.

They fought for freedom and for peace
On strange and foreign shores;
Some lost new friends; some lost their lives
In long and brutal wars.

Other veterans answered a call
To support the ones who fought;
Their country had requirements for
The essential skills they brought.

We salute every one of them,
The noble and the brave,
The ones still with us here today,
And those who rest in a grave.

So here’s to our country’s heroes;
They’re a cut above the rest;
Let’s give the honor that is due
To our country’s very best.

By Joanna Fuchs

  1. Poems For Church

The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as brightly as his brass.
“Step forward now, you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?”
The Soldier squared his shoulders and
said, “No, Lord, I guess I ain’t
Because those of us who carry guns
Can’t always be a saint.
I’ve had to work most Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I’ve been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn’t mine to keep…
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I’ve wept unmanly tears.
I know I don’t deserve a place
Among the people here,
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you’ve a place for me here, Lord,
It needn’t be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don’t, I’ll understand.”
There was a silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God,
“Step forward now, you Soldier,
You’ve borne your burdens well,
Walk peacefully on Heaven’s streets,
You’ve done your time in Hell.”

 

2. Poems For Church

 One Nation Under God
by Roger Robicheau

One Nation Under God we live
Think about all some had to give
We the people share freedom’s life
In a world of ever present strife
Be grateful to those who keep this true
Warriors of our red, white, and blue
They’re trained by those of great skill
Honed to perform, so strong their will
They show what love is all about
They’ll fight for us, there is no doubt
Defending bravely what we are
No holding back each heartfelt star
Highly praise these men and women
Giving thanks time and again
Those in uniform will always be
The golden pride of this country

3. Poems For Church

American is This Hero
by Roger Robicheau

 

American is this Hero
In uniform standing tall
Ready, willing, and able
To march, the will to face all
The proudest of our service
Steadfastly meeting each call
The bravest of our country
As were those upon The Wall
Displaying awesome courage
A treasure you cannot install
Filled with total commitment
To serve us for the long haul
America know this Hero
Thank God and always recall

On Veterans Day we honor all,
Who answered to a service call.
Soldiers young, and soldiers old,
Fought for freedom, brave and bold.
Some have lived, while others died,
And all of them deserve our pride.
We’re proud of all the soldiers who,
Kept thinking of red, white and blue.
They fought for us and all our rights,
They fought through many days and nights.
And though we may not know each name,
We thank ALL veterans just the same.
