Our Heroes This Veterans Day - Poem by Marilyn Lott

He’s a hero at Spanish Cove
He’s a man who fought for our freedom
Jim Fisher is the man I mean
We honor him for so many reasons

He flew twenty-two missions
In the year of nineteen-forty four
His plane was shot down
He was knocking on death’s door

He parachuted into a corn field
But he was captured eventually
After hiding for a time
He was then taken to Germany

Fisher and two others then
Escaped successfully
He finally came back to the states
And with his wife, Helen, lives peacefully

We thank God for folks like Jim
That is what Veterans Day is for
We ask Him to help us find peace
It’s a day we cannot ignore

It started years ago, you know
With the Native Americans
Fighting for rights and freedom
On this cherished and precious land

Let’s all pray to God to help us
Guide our troops and keep them safe
We honor those past and present
Who looked death right in the face

We love them, every single one
And we all just want to say
Keep them safe, God as we honor
Our heroes this Veterans Day!
