Briggs School Annual Veterans Day Assembly
Briggs School Honors Our Veterans
For Our Veterans
Veterans’ Day is a special time to stop and give thanks,
To those who flew jets, sailed the seas, marched, or drove tanks.
To proudly serve your country, you had to sacrifice
Time with family, comforts of home, and some paid the ultimate price.
Be it the Coast Guard, Marines, Air Force, Army, or Navy
You put your life on the line for the needs of the many.
You bravely fought for liberty in lands far away,
And no matter what the cost, freedom had to stay.
There’ve been many battles and wars fought throughout the years
And into every one of them you’ve marched despite your fears.
No matter what the cost, you served your country proudly.
So today and everyday, Americans’ thanks should be heard loudly.
Thank you for giving to your country when you heard the call
Thank you for standing up and fighting, for liberty for all.
But we as Americans should do this everyday.
We need to show we appreciate, the price you had to pay.
We have been given a great gift and it’s called liberty
But just like everything in life, this freedom isn’t free.
Thank you Veterans, for the sacrifice you gave
So that our flag still stands for freedom and today can proudly wave!
