When a soldier puts on that uniform,
He portrays his courage for us
When a soldier awaits his new job
He shows his willingness to serve for us
The soldier knows that there will be times he will be filled with pride.
What he doesn't know is that there is also a dark side.
When a soldier sees hundreds die before his eyes,
He keeps his courage for us
When a soldier lies in a tent in the rain,
He forgets his sorrow for us
Because alas, he knows what he was sent to do
to muffle his cries and be strong for you
As a soldier runs across the battlefield,
He risks his life for us
As a soldier endures the pain of a bullet
He showed his determination for us
His heart keeps telling him that he must stay strong
His brain keeps asking him for how long
When a soldier lies in a pool of his own blood
He knows he gave his best for us
When a soldier dies for us,
He is never forgotten.
