It falls to us to honor them today. Remember what they gave and humbly pray.
Our Troops Around the World

Our troops are in every corner of the world
Trying to protect our countries where we live
With this going on we are not in a dream world
Not everyone in this battle can outlive
Their battle to help the world.

We wish our troops could come home safe and sound
But sadly, some will sacrifice their lives.
They lay at rest interred in holy ground
and leave behind their kids and grieving wives.

It falls to us to honor them today
Remember what they gave and humbly pray.
