In time of need their will is sure
American, their freedom pure

Protect our life and liberty
Unselfishly, they keep us free

Each soldier knows what is at stake
The risk is grave, thereís no mistake

With pride they serve our country strong
They face each foe to come along

Remember them while in your home
Or where you choose to freely roam

Donít take for granted what you see
Some left this life, so it could be

To God I urge you all to pray
For soldierís brave, to face each day

We should be thankful, one and all
For those who march to meet each call

animated American Flag here

Enjoy your Memorial Day holiday
And never forget those who have given their all.
