Veterans Day Poems That Express Gratitude

Veterans Day is a day in America when everyone remembers those who have fought for our country in the past and now. Not only is Veterans Day important for those who have fought for our country, but all their families. Sometimes, many Americans have a hard time on what to say to veterans when it comes to Veterans Day. The typical “thank you for your service” comment seems repetitive at times. A great way to observe Veterans Day and to express your gratitude to veterans is with Veterans Day poems. Below, I will give examples of Veterans Day poems that others have written and my thoughts on them.


A Veterans Day Tribute”

Joanna Fuchs 

If someone has done military service,

They earn the title “veteran”, and more;

They earn our deep respect and admiration;

That they are special no one can ignore.

They sacrificed the comforts we enjoy;

The list is long of all the things they gave.

Our veterans are extraordinary people;

They’re loyal, dedicated, true and brave.

When terror and invasion were real threats,

They showed us they could handle any storm.

We owe our freedoms and our very lives

To our veterans, who served in uniform.

“Because of the Brave”

Ron Tranmer

America, the beautiful,
home of the brave and free.
A land that God, our Father,
has given you and me.

He knows that in our world,
freedom always has it’s price,
and can easily be lost,
without fight and sacrifice.

So with a love of country
our bravest give their all,
Many even life itself…
We’re grateful to them all.

Our Army, Navy, National Guard,
Air Force and Marines.
Present and past…all have made
our bell of freedom ring.

Veterans Day Poems That Express Gratitude PinterestWhether you know a veteran personally or if you just want to show a veteran some gratitude, these Veterans Day poems are great. I specifically love these Veterans Day poems because my husband is in the military. He embodies everything that these poems describe. He has fought overseas and he puts in time day in and day out in the Air Force. Seeing what he does everyday makes me respect everyone in the military and their families. Being in the military and being apart of their family in the military is hard at times. You move away from home and into a new city. For children, this is tough. Veterans Day poems are a great way to express to a veteran that what they are doing for our country is worth it. Even showing the families of veterans support is an awesome way to observe Veterans Day.

If you and your family do not know a veteran personally, you could write Veterans Day poems for them in a card and either take them to a nearby church or veterans hospital. Many cities also have VFWs that you could take them to. Many veterans would enjoy receiving these and knowing that they are appreciated.

Veterans Day poems are a great way to express your gratitude for our veterans. Even if you do not use one of the examples from above, use them as a resource to create your own. Make it a family night activity! Use it as a youth group activity. The possibilities are endless. One thing that is not endless, though, are the sacrifices that veterans all across America fight for us daily.
