Why Our Veterans Are America’s Heroes

They fought for our country. They sacrificed their lives for us. They are loyal and independent. They fought in the Revolutionary War, to help us earn our basic rights. They fought in the Civil War, to put an end to slavery and bring our state rights. They fought in the World Wars, to free the oppressed. They fought in the Persian Gulf War, a fight for democracy. And many more! All of these battles they fought in, they sacrificed our life to earn what was right, just for us. They fought for you, me, and a million others. They trained hard day and night for each and every war they fought in, so they can help us earn freedom we deserve. They kissed their families “good bye” and went off to save them, and their country. They made our flag rise high above us, so we can salute them for everything they did. Now ask yourself. Who should we thank for giving us rights? The Veterans. Who should we thank for giving us our Freedom? The Veterans. Who fought every war to save our land, our home? The Veterans. Who should we give respect to for all the things they did? The Veterans. They are America’s Heroes. They are the people who let us have the words, “The land of the Free, and the Home of the Brave”. They are Veterans.
