Disabled Veterans Poems for Veterans Day

November 10th, 2011 | Posted by MilitaryGifts in Military Appreciation Poems - (Comments Off on Disabled Veterans Poems for Veterans Day)

We can’t forget about the soldiers who were in Iraq and Afghanistan and have been sent home due to injury. These disabled veterans are more often than not experiencing life altering injuries, which leave them without limbs and without hope for easy integration back into society.

Veterans Day allow us to honor all the veterans who have been injured fighting for our country and our freedom. Thought help for our disable veterans is never enough for what they gave for our country and for us, we will forever owe each and every one of those heroes a debt that we can’t repay. Here, let’s our sincerely appreciation poems to show our gratitude and love to disabled veterans.

The Bravest Man I Know

By Amanda Whitney

The bravest man I know.
Is a man I’ve never met.
He’s a man who risks his life
To save a friend,
Not only to save a friend,
But to save a nation.
Risking his life
For those he does not know.
Stepping up
Leaving loved ones behind,
So that somewhere,
Someone else won’t have to.
He is a man who follows orders
Even though he knows he might die.

The bravest man I know.
Is the man who would rather die,
So one more person could go home
To see his family again.
The man who stares death in the face,
But never blinks.

The bravest man I know.
Is the man who risks his life
So one day the world may be a better place for his children.
Or any man who goes against his biggest fear.
Just to save someone he loves.

The bravest man I know.
Is the man who fights
So another man can have the taste of sweet freedom.
Not fighting only for his own benefit,
But for many others all over the world,
Fighting to make this world a better place.
That’s the bravest man I know.

Freedom is not Free

By Ashley Persyn

There is a price we pay for freedom
For it is not truly free
But rather paid for by the contributions of veterans
To buy our liberty
As their blood drains from their body and runs like a river through the grass
Over the years it’s forgotten, war is placed in our past
I don’t think we all realize the importance veterans play
as they voluntarily serve America each and every day
We should honor the veterans for they act like a shield
Protecting us from danger, keeping America healed.
So if you would take a second to commemorate
You will instantly see
We owe veterans our gratitude
For they are the reason we are free

Here are some patriotic poems honoring veterans. Veterans Day poems should include all veterans, living and dead. This Veterans Day poem could be used as a Veteran’s Day Greeting.

Sailor Salute

by Roger W Hancock

Dedicated to the men and women
who serve in the U.S. Navy

Sailor soldier,
Risk upon the sea.
Sailor sons,
Depth on submarines.
Sailor gunner,
Aim be true.
Sailor Sister,
Nurse or fighter.
Sailor on Battleship,
War fitted freighters.
Sailor mariner,
Aircraft carrier.
Sailor dangers,
Below, above.
Sailor we salute
The sailor brave.

American Hero

by Roger W Hancock

In a distant land, soldier’s mission,
Far from home, far from liberty’s security.
Continued war, peace-keeping tactics,
Reality of training, on the job learning.
Survival thoughts in heat of war,
creates the valor, our war heroes.

One soldier volunteer, simple duty serves,
A driver to transport, one lone prisoner.
Humvee rolling, attack from nowhere,
Explosion wounding two, radio out.
Driver’s arm in lap, barely attached,
Continues driving for other’s safety.

The incident does not make the hero,
Training, experience defines his duty.
American soldiers are trained as best,
Hero’s all, the tests will prove.
Greater mission our security,
Duty serves each menial task.
Warfare battles proving some…
An American soldier hero.

Veterans Day

by Roger W Hancock

We honor you, who fought for us,
For country’s sake of freedom’s plight.
You kept the greatest country great,
By sacrifice of you who served.

Honor to military, soldiers served.
There seems no risk in peace to serve.
When war breaks the silent peace,
No peace when security cease.

Sacrifice of civilian life,
Careers succumb to enlist, or draft.
Families wait in fear, in prayer,
For loved ones return alive, not dead.

Returned Heroes and those deceased,
We honor, thank, though insufficient.
Parades, programs, our pride convey,
We honor you on Veterans Day.

Here are two patriotic poems honoring our veterans. Veterans Day peoms should include all veterans, living and dead.


Veterans Day

By Taylor Weinman

Representing the red white and blue
The colors of our flag stand out proud and true.
The white stars on blue background with red and white stripes
Remind me of these veterans, who all risked their lives.
Just so the people of the U.S. could all live in peace and be free
These are the heroes that represent you and me.
They stood up strongly, untied as one,
And kept up the fighting until they were done.
And although some have fallen, and lost their lives in war,
We pray for each one of them.
And now that their souls live on forever more,
Above in God’s hands.
They watch over our nation,
And give us strength to triumph over others with strong anticipation.
So every year, when this day comes by,
Think of all the veterans that while fighting, had to die.
And remember that they were people
With fire and passion embedded inside.
They die for this country,
So remember and honor them with pride


Honor Our Military

By Joanna Fuchs

Let’s honor our veterans,
The men and women who served,
Whose dedication to our country
Does not falter, halt or swerve.
Let’s respect them for their courage;
They’re ready to do what’s right
To keep America safe,
So we can sleep better at night.
Let’s support and defend our soldiers,
Whose hardships are brutal and cruel,
Whose discipline we can’t imagine,
Who follow each order and rule.
Here’s to those who choose to be warriors
And their helpers good and true;
They’re fighting for American values;
They’re fighting for me and you.

Military Retirement Poems

A Soldier

by Robert Frost

He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
That lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust,
But still lies pointed as it ploughed the dust.
If we who sight along it round the world,
See nothing worthy to have been its mark,
It is because like men we look too near,
Forgetting that as fitted to the sphere,
Our missiles always make too short an arc.
They fall, they rip the grass, they intersect
The curve of earth, and striking, break their own;
They make us cringe for metal-point on stone.
But this we know, the obstacle that checked
And tripped the body, shot the spirit on
Further than target ever showed or shone.

Military Retirement

By Sara Teasdale

An aged soldier is but a paltry thing,
A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
Soul clasp its hands and sing, and louder sing
For every tatter in its mortal dress.
William Butler Yeats, Sailing to Byzantium
When I can look Life in the eyes,
Grown calm and very coldly wise,
Life will have given me the Truth,
And taken in exchange – my youth.

A Retired Soldier

by Anne Bronte

O, let me be alone a while,
No human form is nigh.
And may I sing and muse aloud,
No mortal ear is by.
Away! ye dreams of earthly bliss,
Ye earthly cares begone:
Depart! ye restless wandering thoughts,
And let me be alone!
One hour, my spirit, stretch thy wings,
And quit this joyless sod,
Bask in the sunshine of the sky,
And be alone with God!

Parents’ Day Poems

Thank You to My Parents

Thank you for always being there

and knowing just what to do

Thank you for knowing the words to say

When I’m feeling way beyond blue

Thank you for patiently listening

To all my worries and stresses

Thank you for caring enough

To get me out of all my messes

Thank you for being a phone call away

Or around the corner to run to

Thank you for your door always being open

And knowing just what to do

Thank you for being my constant support

When i didn’t think I could cope

Thank you for lifting my spirits

And letting me know there IS hope

Thank you for being the best parents

A daughter could ever wish for

I love you with all my heart

Today and forever more.

To My Parents, I Love You

I have gone through

So many different stages

Changing ideas and goals

While searching for the

Right kind of life for me

You were always

Ready to help me

At all times

It must have seemed like

I would never

Follow one straight path

Now that I know

What I am doing and

Where I am going

I can only show you

My extreme appreciation

For your support

By being true

To all the ideals and values

That you tried to teach me

Thank you forever

For standing by me

I love and appreciate

You forever.

Mom & Dad

I can’t repay the lessons That you taught when I was small.

Or give you gift for gift The daily treasures I recall…

I can’t return encouragement And loving words of praise.

In quite the way you did for me Through all my childhood days.

But there is one gift that I can give, It’s all the love you’ve earned.

For love is what you always taught… And love is what I learned.

To All Parents

“We don’t need your schooling,

We just want to have fun and go around fooling.

We’re the leaders of your nation,

Everything you hear about in the future WE will have done.

We’re going to make sure the world survives,

WE won’t use scams or bribes.

There’s no justice there’s just us,

We sometimes complain and even fuss.

What happened to the meaning of in God we trust?

He created us, love him we must.

So when we get older and our children grow up,

As they start to mature, start to look up.

We’re gong to teach them what you all showed us,

Like to be kind and not to cuss.”
