The Good Fight

For All The Veterans Past and Present, I salute you.

They heeded the call

Took the fight

They wore the uniform

With pride

They were laughed at

Spit at scoffed at

Called Child Killer

And Much worse

By those who took for granted

The very freedom

That these heroes fought for.

They shed blood

In Germany

In Saigon

In the Battlefields

Of Afghanistan

They gave their lives

Gave their limbs

Came back injured

Didnt come back at all

They were prisoners

In strange lands

Fighting a fight of terror

Praying for the light to shine through the darkness.

They fought the good fight

And this is my salute to them.
