Thank a Veteran!

Thank you to all of the men and women who have served our great nation. On Friday, November 10th, New Madrid Elementary had the honor of hosting close to 50 veterans for lunch. Veterans from all branches of the United States military were represented and served by New Madrid Elementary staff and parents. The following poem rings true to our heart for all of the men and women who have served our nation, thank you.

They Did Their Share

On Veterans’ Day we honor

Soldiers who protect our nation.

For their service as our warriors,

They deserve our admiration,

Some of them were drafted;

Some were volunteers.

For some it was just yesterday;

For some it’s been many years.

We owe so much to them,

Who kept us safe from terror.

So when you see a uniform,

Let’s say “thank you “ to every wearer.
