Brave men who fought with dignity and honor
To carry their Country’s flag.
Who in the midst of battle,
Stood strong and firm in their faith
Of a personal God and the Country of their birth.
Strong men who fought side by side,
With men they learned to call their brothers;
Who faced death in the heat of battle;
And dealt with fears in a foreign land,
Learned to accept sacrifice and pain.
Sad men who left behind their families
To keep our freedom alive and well;
Who in their tour of duty kept themselves
True to those they left behind, yet
Carried the scars of war within their hearts.
Confused men who gave all they had
For their love of God and beloved country,
Came back to find their long-held values,
They fought and died for had changed.
They tried to understand the hatred.
We must join our hands together,
With those who fought for those left behind.
We must join to build a new nation
Where there is equality and pride,
And find the courage to speak with one voice.
