America’s first veterans served in the Continental Army and the State Militias; they persevered in a long war with Great Britain. America’s first veterans fought against the superpower of their time; their sacrifices created the Nation.
A Colonial Minuteman fired the shot heard round the world
At Yorktown they fought hard to see
The Union Jack replaced by a flag with 13 Stars representing Liberty.
November 11th is Veterans Day and as a Nation we honor the sacrifices made by all those who served honorably in the U.S. Armed Forces.
