To all who’ve stood tall for freedom
Those of us who’ve never served can’t truly understand the sacrifices that you made protecting life and land.
You were called from homes and jobs.
You never turned around.
You did more than was asked of you in air, on sea, on ground.
You gave for us in freedom’s name ‘til now the time has come for us to give you in return a “Thank you!” Every one. © 1991
