Veterans

Whenever our country has problems 
There's a group we can be thankful for.  
It's the American Armed Forces Veterans 
Those we send off in the time of war.  

Our veterans have served us proudly 
Willing to fight for old Uncle Sam.  
Be it on the beaches of France or Iwo Jima 
Korea, in Afghanistan, Iraq or Viet Nam.  

There are always some brave Americans 
Who are willing to perform the task!  
They will fight for the freedom of others 
All their country has to do is ask!  

They'll spend years away from their families 
But for liberty, they will go out and try.  
They'll live in the jungles, desert and foxholes 
And for your freedom, some of them will die!  

If you love this great country we live in 
Remember the cost that was paid, better yet.  
The next time you see a person who served 
Go shake their hand and say "thanks" to a Vet.
