You Will Never be Forgotten
You forgot about your fears and quickly grabbed your gun,
and into the thick of the battle you did bravely run.
Never once did you stop to think about all of the dangers,
you were there to protect us, whether family, friends or strangers.
Fighting for your country to remain proud and free
wanting each and every one of us to keep our liberty.
Fighting with bold courage never thinking of the cost;
never giving up even if it meant your life would be lost.
Thank you for your bravery and dying for this great land,
you will forever be remembered as a selfless woman or man.
May your families be forever proud of the sacrifice you made;
may you live long in their hearts and your memories never fade.
"You will not be forgotten" are the words we humbly say;
remembering the sacrifice you made for us that day.
Because of your valor Old Glory is free to proudly wave
o'er the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!
