Our Nation's Heroes

          Bless our nation's veterans,
          protectors of this land.
          Despite how hard the mission,
          side by side they took a stand.

          They fought with faith and honor,
          hearts filled with country pride.
          Defenders of our freedom,
          some were wounded, others died.

          Bless these loyal heroes,
          souls one in righting wrong.
          With gratitude, we laud them
          for they kept our nation strong.
