This is #5 of 6 of CC's Americana Heritage Series 5k Events, being presented as an active, grateful and honoring celebration of all who who have served, and those who currently serve, in any of the several branches of the US military to protect and defend the US Constitution and thereby the life-liberty-happiness of others.
Inspiring words from "America the Beautiful" will be played at the Veterans Day USA 5k:
O beautiful for heroes prov'd
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country loved,
And mercy more than life.
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine.
O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears.
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.
