Charles J. Ingerson


We heard the call
our nation to serve
then went where sent
doing and teaching
some in warfare
combat hard and hot
others at sea or air
supporting – fighting
matters not of the who
we’re Americans
we’re Veterans
serving our nation
having well done
acquitted ourselves
fully and honorably!

Thus we still serve
supporting those now
who’ve taken our place
acquitting themselves
with honor they serve
this Veteran’s Day!
