We Have Freedom Because of YOU

We Have Freedom Because of You

There are troops stationed over seas,
Fighting for freedom, fighting for people like me.
The Army, Navy, Air Force, and the Marines,
Heroes of all races camouflaged in brown and green.

Still as statues so boldly they stand,
Helmets on their heads, and a weapon in their hands.

A thousand yard stare with their heads held high,
They salute to the red, white and blue as it rises in the sky.

There is a platoon stationed over seas,
Fighting for freedom, fighting for people like me.

They come from all different states in the USA,
But freedom doesn't come free as most people say.

Left by right they stay by each others sides,
Without people like them we wouldn't have American pride.

They stick by each other when times are rough,
But every person in the platoon is mentally and physically tough.

There is a soldier stationed over seas,
Fighting for freedom, fighting for people like me.

The young individual so brave and strong,
God bless her night and day and all year long.

She is a courageous, smart lady and a hero in my eyes,
I pray for her every time I see an American flag fly.

So thanks for all the work that you do,
Freedom isn't free; we have it because of you...
