To Whom It Would Be of Interest, I wrote this song to pay tribute to All Veterans and would be honored if you choose to post it on your Patriotic Web Site.

I thank you and God Bless!


A Tribute To Veterans

In Vietnam, Korea and World Wars Past

Our Men Fought Bravely so Freedom Would Last

 Conditions Were Not Always Best They Could Be

 Fighting a Foe You Could Not Always See:


 From Mountain Highs to Valley Lows

From Jungle Drops to Desert Patrols


Our Sinewy Sons Were Sent Over Seas

Far From Their Families And Far From Their Dreams

 They Never Wrote Letters Of Hardships Despair

 Only Of Love, Yearning That One Day Soon:


 They Would Come Home, They Would Resume

And Carry On With The Rest of Their Lives


 The P.O.W.šS Stood Steadfast

 Against the Indignities And Cruelties Of War

 They Could Not Have Lasted as Long as They Did

If They Had Relinquished Their Hope That Some Day:


They Would Come Home, They Would Resume

And Carry On the Rest Of Their Lives


Medics, Nurses, and Chaplains Alike

 Did What They Needed To Bring Back Life

They Served Our Forces From Day Into Night

Not Questioning If They Would Survive:


 They Mended Bones And Bodies Too,

 They Soothed the Spirits of Dying Souls


 And for Those M.I.AšS, Who Were Left Behind

 We Echo This Message Across the Seas

We Will search For as Long As It Takes

Youšre Not Forgotten And Will Always Be:


 In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers,

In Our Minds For All Time


A Moment of Silence, a Moment of Summons

Is Their Deliverance of Body And Soul

To a Sacred Place That We All Know

Deep In the Shrines of Our Soul:


 In Our Hearts, In Our Prayers

 In Our Minds For All Time




These Immortalized Soldiers Whose Bravery Abounds

Theyšre Our Husbands, Fathers, and Sons

They Enlisted For the Duty at Hand

To Serve the Cause of Country and Land:


They Had Honor, They Had Valor,

They Found Glory That Change Them Forever


 Men Standing Tall and Proud They be

A Country Behind Them in a Solemn Sea

So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly

Unfurled in Their Majesty High:


In the Sun, In the Rain

 In the Winds Across This Land


Years of Tears Has Brought Us Here

Gathering Around to Hear This Sound

So Let the Flags of Freedom Fly,

 Unfurled in Their Majesty High:


 In the Sun, In the Rain,

In the Winds Across This Land.


In the Sun, In the Rain,

In the Winds For All Time.
