Great War of life upon them
Each one with courage blessed
Forged with all their power
Each one gave their best

Fought with pride and honor
Their sign of victory
Traces of their valor
Within life's history

Never are forgotten
Those who fought Big War
Each one a great reminder
Of freedom on our shores

Look to them with honor
Their passion was to win
Soldiers of the First World War
Each one of them life's kin

Pride within our bounty
That traces through the years
Determination honored
So powerfully revered

Here's to all the Doughboys
That fought with all their might
To pave the way for others
Freedom's hearts unite.
