Veterans and Veterans Day are important to our nation and heritage

.

By Wendell Dawson, Editor, AVOC, Inc

.

We should all pause and remember and thank our veterans for sacrifices made to preserve and protect our nation.   Without their bravery, effort and sacrifice, our nation would not have endured.

Jack Hogan, Bogart High School 1954, has written an article on Veterans that appears below.

Veterans Day 2007

By Jack Hogan 11-7-07

Veterans Day 2007

When I was the paper boy for

The Atlanta Journal Constitution

 In Bogart, GA way back in 1951

 I remember reading the obituaries of those who

fought in the Civil War

 I marveled that I was that close

To the war between the states

Now I find myself reading the obituaries

Of WW II soldiers

Who are dying at over a thousand a day

They like the ones who went before them

Put their lives on the line

For you and me

That this country

The most free ever

Should survive

This week has Veteran’s Day

Find a veteran and thank him or her

Friday if at all possible

As an old Marine and American citizen

I honor those who served

I thank God for them

And especially this week

I want to let them know about it

I want to salute them for their service

I want to hug them for their sacrifice

May God forever bless our nation
