Our Servicemen, Our Heroes
Our Servicemen are Heroes to me
They fight in order for us to be free
Our fathers and mothers have gone before
They defended our Country by going to war.
Our Servicemen fight us for freedom each day
Some lose their lives; it's a high price to pay
They fight for our country, for me and for you
They fight for our children, our grandchildren too.
Unless we find a better way
To stop the terrorists, and the games they play
To guarantee we're safe in our land
Our Servicemen continue to fight in the sand.
Our dream is to have them all home again
For our Country to be safe for every man
In the meantime, we know Freedom isn't free
Thanks to our Servicemen - you're Heroes to me.
The Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs departments created the National Resource Directory -- located at http://www.nationalresourcedirectory.gov/ -- to link wounded warriors, service members, veterans, their families and caregivers to nationwide resources that support recovery, rehabilitation and community reintegration.
