It was really touching
To see the gathered groups
Waiting at the airport
To welcome home the troops.
They carried flags and banners.
As others watched they cheered.
They roared with satisfaction
As the expected plane grew near.
They formed a loving gauntlet.
They made a joyous line.
With hugs and hardy handshakes
They let their feelings shine.
All the hometown heroes
Were coming home to stay.
The war was far behind them
On this happy Veterans Day.
