Thank you Larry
The song is very touching—the thing that really stinks is that a singer has to write a song like that to remind people that there are people that have served and given their lives for their various countries so that they can have the freedoms that they so love today.

I always give thanks to those who have served

this year the time came while i was standing on a kitchen cupboard fitting top scribes to the overheads

talk about surreal standing there for my minutes silence

for those who served thank you for my freedom

Yes Larry, it is moving and too easy to forget the sacrifices of individuals and their families. We do owe them a lot for keeping us safe and free. God bless them all!
