There is a price we pay for freedom
for it is not truly free but rather paid
by contributions of veterans to buy
As their blood drains from their body
and runs like a river through the grass
Over the years it's forgotten, was is
placed in our past.
I don't think we all realize the importance
veterans play as they voluntarily serve
America each and every day.

act like a shield protecting us from danger,
keeping America healed. So if you would
take a second to commemorate you will
instantly see we owe veterans our gratitude
for they are the reason we are free.
women who serve to keep us free.
