Veterans' Day 2011 - I Remember You


Joint Honor Guard


Woke up to the sound of pouring rain 
The wind would whisper and I'd think of you
And all the tears you cried, that called my name
And when you needed me I came through



Buffalo Soldiers during Spanish American War


I paint a picture of the days gone by
When love went blind and you would make me see
I'd stare a lifetime into your eyes
So that I knew you were there for me
Time after time you were there for me 


WWI Veteran Joseph Ambrose holding the flag that 
covered his son's casket from the Vietnam War

Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you 

WWII veterans on the National Mall.

We spend the summer with the top rolled down
Wished ever after would be like this
You said I love you babe, without a sound
I said I'd give my life for just one kiss
I'd live for your smile and die for your kiss 

Korean Veteran  visits the Korean Memorial 


Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand 
Love letters in the sand - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you 

Vietnam Veterans in Rolling Thunder

We've had our share of hard times
But that's the price we paid
And through it all we kept the promise that we made
I swear you'll never be lonely 

Blackhawk crew in Somolia


Woke up to the sound of pouring rain
Washed away a dream of you
But nothing else could ever take you away
'Cause you'll always be my dream come true
Oh my darling, I love you 

Gulf War Veteran comes home.


Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand
Love letters in the sand - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you 

Sailors aboard USS Kitty Hawk man the rails and
salute the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor

Remember yesterday - walking hand in hand 
Love letters in the sand - I remember you
Through the sleepless nights and every endless day
I'd wanna hear you say - I remember you

WWII veteran thanks wounded Marine.

  1. My father was in Viet Nam. To this day he will not speak of it. Veterans and those who continue to serve should be saluted for all they do for us.
