Salute To Veterans

The members of Writer's Block at Sikeston Junior High School would like to express our thanks to all the veterans of the area who served our country. You are the kind of people who make us proud to be Americans. We really appreciate what you did to make a way for us. We are fortunate to live in the land of the free because of you and all the veterans across the country. The recent act of terrorism forced us to focus on how fortunate we are to live in the United States.

We are grateful for the sacrifices that you made. We realize that some people seem to take you for granted at times, but we want you to know that what you have done for our country will never be forgotten.

America is blessed to have citizens such as you who were willing to serve and risk their lives for our country so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have today.

We salute you! You will never be forgotten.
