Soldiers who protect our nation.
For their service as our warriors,
They deserve our admiration.
Some were volunteers;
For some it was just yesterday;
For some it’s been many years.
On land or on the sea,
They did whatever was assigned
To produce a victory.
They defended us everywhere.
Some saw combat; some rode a desk.
All of them did their share.
For low pay and little glory,
These soldiers gave up normal lives,
For duties mundane and gory.
Don’t let politics get in the way.
Without them, freedom would have died.
What they did, we can’t repay.
Who kept us safe from terror,
So when we see a uniform,
Let’s say "thank you" to every wearer.
