Thank you, Veterans!

The bloggers here at Fresh Brew wish all of you veterans, those who have served and still are serving, and those families who have lost courageous men and women:

Happy Veteran's Day!

Below is a tribute to all of you.

The Bravest Man I Know
by Amanda Whitney

The bravest man I know.
Is a man I've never met.
He's a man who risks his life
To save a friend,
Not only to save a friend,
But to save a nation.

Risking his life
For those he does not know.
Stepping up
Leaving loved ones behind,
So that somewhere,
Someone else won't have to.
He is a man who follows orders
Even though he knows he might die.

The bravest man I know.
Is the man who would rather die,
So one more person could go home
To see his family again.
The man who stares death in the face,
But never blinks.

The bravest man I know.
Is the man who risks his life
So one day the world may be a better place for his children.
Or any man who goes against his biggest fear.


Just to save someone he loves.

The bravest man I know.
Is the man who fights
So another man can have the taste of sweet freedom.
Not fighting only for his own benefit,
But for many others all over the world,
Fighting to make this world a better place.

That's the bravest man I know.

And to Kirk Smith, one of our own bloggers, we appreciate you! Thank you for standing up for the rights of others even when they have no clue!

Please friends, don't just thank a veteran today, thank them everyday.
