The Vietnam Vet
 

Today let's honor the Vietnam Vet
He served our country; did you thank him yet?
No matter what you thought of the Vietnam War
Thank the veteran; we're the ones he fought for.

The Vietnam Vet is a man of pride
A man of honor who didn't hide
When he was called to serve us all
The Vietnam Vet stood proud and tall.

He left his home, his family and friends'
Some never made it back home again.
Some were shattered and will never be the same
And some will always remember their pain.

Please, thank a Vietnam Veteran today
Look him in the eye and mean what you say
And don't be surprised to see tears in his eyes
Yes, thank a Veteran while he's still alive.
