There are many families who have loved ones in the Armed Forces

That means they have got to be tough

For they are supporting their sons and daughters

And some days, it is going to be rough.

There are lots of moms, dads and families over here

Who are sending over letters to the troops

To bring them love, hope and cheer

The troops are fighting in Afghanistan and other places

And they will give it all they have got, to win

To keep on doing their best, whatever may come

Because we’re dealing with the U.S. Military

And they believe in freedom!

Yes, there are concerned and proud families, feeling faily fear

But you can bet they will be taking it on the chin, and hang in there!

Knowing our men and women are surrounded by their love and prayer

From spouses, families, friends and moms and dads, who really care.

Yes, we are proud of military

And we need to appreciate and understand

Just what they have done for millions of Americans

Across our great and mighty land

And so U.S. Armed Forces, we salute you.

And thank you for all you have done

To hold onto our country’s freedom!

For each and every one.
