    I know I didn't.  You beat me to it on the thread.

    This isn't the best of "poems" (if you call it that), but saying, "happy Veterans Day" isn't what people do.  Anyway, it's what I've got:

            VETERANS DAY

    Not just this day, but all days
    you're thought of
    in so many ways.
    Not just this day, but all days
    You've not been forgotten.

    Each time free words are spoken,
    each day we wake in peace;
    each time each child is taught
    what it means to be free;
    Someone somewhere remembers
    your courage and tears.
    Someone knows he can't know
    all the things that you have seen.

    Not just this day, but all days
    when we can still say
    that that Star Spangled Banner yet waves;
    though no words can express
    what so deeply is felt
    we think of you
    on this day
    and all days.

    My prayers are with the families and loved ones, of all the servicemen and women who gave their life.And the ones who are still fighting today, to give us the freedom we enjoy today.

    The "Ode of Remembrance" is an ode taken from Laurence    Binyon's poem "For the Fallen", which was first published in The Times in September 1914.



    They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
    Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
    They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
    They fell with their faces to the foe.
    They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
    Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
    We will remember them.

    IN FLANDERS FIELD.....

    In Flanders Fields the poppies blow,
    Between the crosses , row on row,
    That mark our place : and in the sky,
    The larks still bravely singing, fly,
    Scarce heard among the guns belo.


    We are the dead, short days ago
    We lived , felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
    Loved and were loved and now we lie,
    In Flanders Fields.

    Take up your quarel with the foe :
    To you with failing hands we throw,
    The torch be yours to hold it high
    If ye break faith with us who die

    WE SHALL NOT SLEEP
    THOUGH POPPIES GROW
    IN FLANDERS FIELDS

    Thanks for that, Merlin - they don't have Armistice Day here, so your thread was a timely reminder for us to hold our own little service, in remembrance of those who fought in WWI smile

    And 1878 men were killed or wounded between the 10th and 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.
    - Great Adventure indeed.
    Lest we forget.

    I was part of the cenotaph Navy guard in the late 60's - probably the simplest and most moving ceremony anywhere.
