A Tribute to Those That Are in the Ground
We salute all of you who wore the uniform of the U.S.A.
You wore your uniform with pride,
Serving along with others side by side.
Some served where you fully understood
the meaning war is hell.
Much gratitude is due you and we wish you well.
Others served in faraway places,
far away from the ones you love.
Nevertheless, giving yourself in service for your
Country and God Above.
Some were left to hold down the home fort,
but always making sure those overseas had your support.
So no matter when, where, or how you served,
you helped keep America great and well preserved.
You have won a place in America's heart and in history,
That's why America, the greatest country in the world,
is no mystery.
Thanks to all of you our friends, America will always be the
greatest until the very end.
