God bless our service men and women
Who serve our country world wide
Whether in peace time or at war
They serve our country with pride.

They do their jobs
No matter how big or small
To protect our Nation
With freedom for all.

As soldiers before them
They walk the same path
Holding their heads high
Against any wrath.

So if you should see them
Go walking by
Be sure to say thank you
And let them know why.
