We Stood For Freedom


We stood for freedom just like you
And loved the flag you cherish too

Our uniforms felt great to wear
You know the feel, and how you care

In step we marched, the cadence way
The same is true with you today

Oh how we tried to do our best
As you do now, from test to test

How young we were and proud to be
Defenders of true liberty

So many thoughts bind soldiers well
The facts may change, not how we jell

Each soldier past, and you now here
Do share what will not disappear

One thought now comes, straight from my heart
For soldiers home, whoíve done their part

Iím honored to have served with you
May Godly peace, help get you through

And now Iíll end with a request
Do ponder this, while home at rest

America, respect our day
Each veteran, helped freedom stay
