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;
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.
