If I were a veteran, I would go to the cemetery
and think of all my friends. I would cry because, those friends
were my best friends and my friends died for our country. I'd
feel so bad for them. Our country is so lucky to be free because
of my friends and the other people of the United States of America.
If I were a veteran, I would be thinking about
my great grandfather Dr.Warmenhoven. I would be wondering what
he was like. I would go to his grave and throw flowers on his
grave. I would have a big party in remembrance of him. I would
be doing all of this because he fought in World War II. That's
what I would do if I were a veteran.
If I were a veteran, I would hold a celebration
for all those people who survived and I would pray for all those
who died. I would visit their graves and put flowers on their
grave and pray for them. I would make up a special prayer for
each and everyone of them. I would visit all those people who
died or are still alive and either pray for them or talk to them.
I would probably ask those who survived " What did you do
with your life, after the war?" and "How is your life
now?" That 's what I'd do if I were a veteran today.
If I were a veteran, I would go visit the graveyard
I would pray for all those who died in World War II. I would
say 'thank you for saving our nation and God bless you'. I would
go visit Hawaii and see all the boats that were used in the war.
I would look at some of the airplanes that they used too. I would
go to the World War II museum and look at every thing there.
That's what I would do if I were a veteran today.
If I were a veteran, I would probably
have larger fears of death than I ever did, because of how close
I came to that point in time. But I guess I can count my self
lucky. All of the memories I had--good and bad--I pledge to take
them to my grave. All of the friends I made who had their lives
taken away--I will remember them always. I am very much honored
to have served for my country.
If I were a veteran, I would celebrate living
with all my other friends. I would tell about fighting and all
the horrible and good things I saw. After I finished celebrating,
I would play all the patriotic songs I know on the piano, and
go to church to pray for all
the friends I lost. Then I would mount pictures of them on the
wall of my house. At night I would go to the graves of all my
lost friends and put flowers or American flags on them. After
that I would send cards and thank all the generals I knew because
I had great respect for them. Then I would go to bed and be mourning
over my lost friends, thanking the good Lord that I was still
alive, and thanking those who gave their lives for our country.
