There are many ex-service people around the world, Service people from all nations who have served their country in search of peace. Some of those service personnel were our enemies and a lot were allies and friends.
All are Veterans of the world's Armed Forces, and today should not only be a Veterans Day in the United States; it should commemorate every person who has worn a uniform.
So from one Veteran to every other veteran, I salute you and wish you well. May our fallen never be forgotten, but more over let their memories continue to keep our military fraternity alive. Our community is a brother and sisterhood that can never be equaled; we are a community of those who have served in the name of peace....

Universal Soldier

He's five foot-two, and he's six feet-four,
He fights with missiles and with spears.
He's all of thirty-one, and he's only seventeen,
Been a soldier for a thousand years.

He'a a Catholic, a Hindu, an Atheist, a Jain,
A Buddhist and a Baptist and a Jew.
And he knows he shouldn't kill,
But he knows he always will,
Kill you for me my friend and me for you.

And he's fighting for Canada,
He's fighting for France,
He's fighting for the USA,
And he's fighting for the Russians,
And he's fighting for Japan,
And he thinks we'll put an end to war this way.

And he's fighting for Democracy,
He's fighting for the Reds,
He says it's for the peace of all.
He's the one who must decide,
Who's to live and who's to die,
And he never sees the writing on the wall.

But without him,
How would Hitler have condemned him at Dachau?
Without him Caesar would have stood alone,
He's the one who gives his body
As a weapon of the war,
And without him all this killing can't go on.

He's the Universal Soldier and he really is to blame,
His orders come from far away no more,
They come from here and there and you and me,
And brothers can't you see,
This is not the way we put the end to war.
