A Tribute To Veterans

In Vietnam, Korea And World Wars Past
Our Men Fought Bravely So Freedom Would Last
Conditions Where Not Always Best They Could Be
Fighting A Foe You Could Not Always See:

From Mountain Highs To Valley Lows
From Jungle Drops To Desert Patrols

Our Sinewy Sons Were Sent Over Seas
Far From Their Families And Far From Their Dreams
They Never Wrote Letters Of Hardships Despair
Only Of Love, Yearning That One Day Soon:

They Would Come Home, They Would Resume
And Carry On With The Rest of Their Lives

The P.O.W.'S Stood Steadfast
Against The Indignities And Cruelties Of War
They Could Not Have Lasted As Long As They Did
If They Had Relinquished Their Hope That Some Day:

THey Would Come Home, They Would Resume
And Carry On The Rest Of Their Lives
   
Medics, Nurses, And Chaplains Alike
Did What They Needed To Bring Back Life
They Served Our Forces From Day Into Night
Not Questioning If They Would Survive:

They Mended Bones And Bodies Too,
They Soothed The Spirits Of Dying Souls

And For Those M.I.A¹S, Who Were Left Behind
We Echo This Message Across The Seas
We Will Search For As Long As It Takes
You¹re Not Forgotten And Will Always Be:

In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers,
In Our Minds For All Time

A Moment Of Silence, A Moment Of Summons
Is Their Deliverance Of Body And Soul
To A Sacred Place That We All Know
Deep In The Shrines Of Our Soul:

In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers
In Our Minds For All Time

INTERLUDE;
GOLD STAR MOTHERS GRIEVE: ENDLESSLY,
ENDLESSLY, ENDLESSLY. . . . . .
                
These Immortalized Soldiers Whose Bravery Abounds
They¹re Our Husbands, Fathers, And Sons
They Enlisted For The Duty At Hand
To Serve The Cause Of Country And Land:

They Had Honor, They Had Valor
They Found Glory That Change Them Forever

Men Standing Tall And Proud They be
A Country Behind Them In A Solemn Sea
So Let The Flags Of Freedom Fly
Unfurled In Their Majesty High:

In The Sun, In The Rain
In The Winds Across This Land

Years Of Tears Has Brought Us Here
Gathering Around To Hear This Sound
So Let The Flags Of Freedom Fly
Unfurled In Their Majesty High:

In The Sun, In The Rain
In The Winds Across This Land
 
REPEAT:

In The Sun, In The Rain
   In The Winds For All Time
