Veterans Day

Please don't forget those you gave their lives so we can have freedom and hug those who still are here.

My (late) Father "Milton Pagel" and Brother "Nelson Pagel" served in the Army. My *other father*, Tony Castillos also served in the Navy. I appreciate what they have done. They gave me a chance to be the person that I am today.

Thank you and God Bless all the Veterans.

“Stand Proud”

Stand Proud, my brother,
Stand Proud, my sister,
Stand proud, my father,
Stand Proud, my mother.

We can sleep at night,
Free from worry.
We can speak our mind
With heart filled passion.

So I can vote for a man
That I believe in,
So I can walk the streets
Safe and be secure.

You have made me proud,
Fighting for me,
Walking in danger
So we can be free.

On the beaches you fought,
In the mountains you climbed,
Fighting for a cause
And trying to stay alive.

Some of you still are there,
In spirit you walk about
Looking at us and hoping
We still remember.

We remember you
The farmer, the postman,
The driver and the young man.
Ordinary people with ordinary lives.

Lives you gave in full
So I can sleep in peace
And now, I still sleep in peace
With you watching over me.
