ROCKY   (Rocky and Piper enter) Hey, Piper, why do they make a special day

                 for animal doctors?
PIPER      What’re you talking about, Rocky?

ROCKY    Well, once a year we celebrate the animal doctor’s day, that’ll be here

                  in a few days.
PIPER      Oh, Rocky! You mean Veterans Day!
ROCKY    Yep, that’s what I’m talkin’ about!

PIPER       I think you’re getting “veterans” and “veterinarians” mixed up!


ROCKY    There’s a difference? (Piper looks at Rocky’s eyes) Oh, I guess there

                  is! What’s so special about Veterans Day, anyway?

PIPER       It’s a day we honor our veterans who served in the military.


ROCKY     What’re all the different kinds of military that we got?


PIPER       We have the army, navy, marines, air force and the coast guard.

ROCKY    Didn’t Uncle Beryl say he served in the army?

PIPER      Why don’t we see if we can ask Uncle Beryl about being a soldier in

                  the army. (Piper looks back stage) Uncle Beryl, could you come here

                  for a minute?
BERYL     (Enters) Hello, Rocky and Piper! What would you like to know?

ROCKY    Uncle Beryl, what does Veterans Day mean to you?


BERYL    Well, I did get to serve our country by being in the army. I think that

               it’s a special honor to be willing to give your life for your country. We

               believe in freedom in our country and sometimes we have to fight to

               keep our freedom. The thing I like the most is the freedom to go to

               church and worship the Lord.
ROCKY   Does the Bible talk about being a soldier?

BERYL    II Timothy 2:3-4 says, “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good

               soldier of Jesus Christ. No man that warreth entangleth himself with

               the affairs of this life: that he may please him who hath chosen him to

               be a soldier.”
ROCKY   What does that mean?

BERYL    It means that we can be a soldier for Jesus, too! Jesus wants us to work

               hard at being a good soldier and spend time with Him and not get into

               the sins of this world. We are also able to fight the devil!
ROCKY   How’re we able to fight the devil?

BERYL    Ephesians 6:11 says, “Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be

               able to stand against the wiles of the devil.” We, as soldiers for Jesus,

               need to pray, read the Bible and go to church as often as we can. We

               also need to learn and do what’s right for ourselves and to resist the

               devil. James 4:7 says, “Submit yourselves therefore to God, resist the

               devil and he will flee from you.”


PIPER      Thank you, Uncle Beryl, for telling us about being a good soldier!

BERYL    Bye, see you later! (Beryl exits)

PIPER      Rocky, do you see now why it’s important to be a soldier?


ROCKY   Yes, the devil likes to see us do things that make Jesus sad!

PIPER      So, what can we do to make Jesus happy?

ROCKY    By praying, reading the Bible and doing what it says, and going to


PIPER      And that will make you a good soldier for Jesus!


ROCKY   So, I guess being a good soldier for our country is good, too!


PIPER      Yes, it is! Why don’t we sing “Onward Christian Soldier.” (Rocky

               and Piper sing the song) Good bye, everybody! Happy Veterinarians,

               I mean, happy Veterans Day! (Rocky and Piper begin to exit) Now

               you got me saying it, Rocky! (Both say good byes as they exit)
