THE VETERAN

I can tell you're a veteran
by the look in your eyes
From the tears that flow
when you see an American flag fly

I can tell you're a veteran
by the way you hold your head
Carried high and proud
of the service you did

Most people don't understand
And some don't give a damn
about the events that happened in the past
They don't give you a second glance

I can tell you're a veteran
Your memory will always stand tall
People can't look at your feats as small
You've been through more than most will ever know

I can tell you're a veteran
and a veteran you will always be
America should never forget you
Because if there were no veterans
our country would not be free
