What is a Veteran?

What is a veteran? Just look around.
Right where you're standing,
He fought for that ground.
A vet is a person who answered the call,
who went into war, and gave it his all.

For many the battles never will end,
Now they are civilians, and find they can't blend.
Some are disabled, and some are disturbed.
After coming home from hell,
They find they've been curbed.

Now is the time to honor our vets.
Remember their pain, don't ever forget.
Remember them now, and give them their due.
Stand by their side, 'cause they did it for you.
