|YOU ARE RIGHT, OF COURSE. BUT ITS BETTER NOW THEN IT WAS IN 2008. STILL NOT PERFECT AND I ADMIT WE HAVE A LONG WAYS TO GO, BUT GOD KNOWS ITS NOT AS BAD FOR VETS AS IT USED TO BE. I'M THE MOTHER OF A VET, SO I DO TAKE THIS SITUATION PERSONALLY. THANKS FOR SHARING, BUDDY. LOVE, BLESSINGS AND FAITH...JOYCE * HIS INSPIRATIONS|

|You are so right Budd, let us honor those who keep us safe, so we shall never forget the sacrifice they make for us. Some do not return, others without limbs and bruised souls. Praise to all of them...

|Nor will I dear Budd... Very nicely written! If everyone felt as we do this would be a better world.
Blessings and hugs!

|Great write Budd,and I too honor and salute veterans. Each Thanksgiving and Christmas(and throughout the year) I, along with a few friends, prepare meals and gifts for veterans who live in a nearby veteran's compound.
Thank you for sharing,and continued success.

|This is a great poem...we do not honor those who served our country enough.

|All the men in my family were veterans. I have nothing but the utmost respect for those who are serving and for those who have served as my children and grandchildren were taught to have as well. You have stated it all so well here in your write.

|an excellent Write Budd
you hit it on the head
we must teach our youth the reaspect
needed for for our Vets, the ones that return
and those that left their souls in a battle field
Peace be with you

|An interesting confluence of modern language ("sans tickertape and confetti") and Shakespearean lyric ("our people yore who honored those"). Trying to bridge the old and new in one piece is ok but perhaps continuity is preferable. Nonetheless, your message is intact and touching. All vets (I am one) desire America's veneration, back-slaps, and thanks. Enjoyed.
