Mission Statement 
Our mission is to fulfill  Matthew 28:16-20
  “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Let us remember our veterans this weekend
They were getting old and paunchy
And their hair was falling fast,
And they sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past. Of a war that they once fought in
And the deeds that they had done,
In their exploits with their buddies;
They were heroes, every one. And ‘tho sometimes to their neighbor’s
Their tales became a joke,
All their buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of they spoke.

But we’ll hear their tales no longer,
For ol’ (Joe / Joann) has passed away,
And the world’s a little poorer
For a Veteran died today.

They won’t be mourned by many,
Just their children and their spouse.
For they lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

They held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on their way;
And the world won’t note their passing,
‘Tho a Veteran died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young,
But the passing of a Veteran
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary patriot
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up their life?

The politician’s stipend
And the style in which they live,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that they give.

While the ordinary Veteran,
Who offered up their all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With their ever-waffling stand?

Or would you want a Veteran
their home, their country, their kin,
Just a common Veteran,
Who would fight until the end.

They were just a common Veteran,
And their ranks are growing thin,
But their presence should remind us
We may need their likes again.

For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Veteran’s part,
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do them honor
While they are here to hear the praise,
Then at least let’s give them homage
At the ending of their days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:
