We watched as you walked out the door
We waved and cried and prayed for more
That you would come back safe and sound
This country treasures so profound

Each one of a you a gift that gave
For many years our history saved
Upon the shores of blood and glory
Each one of you our "own" true story

No fear no thought you gave your all
You fought and died for freedom's call
The years have passed and still we know
Each sacrifice a "debt we owe"

You are the mirror of our past
Reflecting heroes always last
Marching on in endless streams
The glow of every heart that gleams.
