The Invisible Hero., Our War Veterans.

Our country, our government, ignores them, as though it never happened.
As if they have a reason to be ashamed.  

They died, they loved, they did exist, though they were never officially named.

their families shared them, because, our government sent them, not giving a valid reason why.

Our loving protectors, gave  of  themselves,  all  willing  to  fight  and  die.

Now  they  are  ignored   and  forgotten,  tossed  aside  like  an  old  worn  out  shoe ,

in  need  of  our  government  assistance,  for  the  recognition  they  are  due.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Medical, mental, and physical   needs---and homes and places to live,

Why must they keep on giving?  When they’ve nothing left to give,

Put  your  heart  in  gear,  put  your  arms  out  and  hug  them,
we  give  value  to  the  lives  they  bared,                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 

Even  though  you  don't  know  them,    that  shouldn't   really  matter,  because,  their  lives they  shared,

They didn’t ask why? They  trusted  us  to  honor  their  dedication,to  their  loved  ones, let  peace be real,

And   now they need help.  Won’t you acknowledge their worth,    and let   "Freedom"   really “Heal."  
Honor our Veterans, its way overdue! If  you  see  a  disabled  veteran  anywhere,

Please  don't  look  away as if you're ashamed of them, or embarrassed by them.
Give them a huge smile, and a well deserved "Thank You!" Just a simple Thank You!

"Thank you"- You deserve to be happy and to be looked up to. Hope the government stops ignoring them and supply the needs they have now for they rendered their services when they were needed.
