Armed Forces Tribute

ARMED FORCES TRIBUTE

Honor those fine men who stood in the way,

Keeping your freedoms so you had your say,

They did fight and die, and bleed – all for you,

You didn’t think about them – had no clue,

In uniform, around the world, they stood,

Doing all, vastly more, past what they could,

Some gave a bit, and a few gave a lot,

While some gave all, and they received a plot,

These brave souls wrote the ultimate blank check,

When our country cried, and gave call and beck,

Remember these soldiers, airmen, marines,

Sailors, and Coast Guard who sacrificed means,

Honor these fine men and women today,

Who through their efforts kept evil at bay.
