Standing while singing the Star Spangled Banner
By the last lingering note, I shed a tear
Overwhelmed by the sheer determination
The United States Armed Services has shown.
Once summoned to protect their land
Overcoming any obstacle, our best women and men
Risking everything to face danger head on
Bravery, loyalty wrapped in a uniform.
For the hours of dedication
For leaving your families behind
For the safety of our nation
5 word summation
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE
You are the strength that protects our future
Guardians of what America stands for.
