Shadows fall upon us
With glitter and with gleam
For Veterans united
Upon the earth esteemed

Each one our inspiration
For love that they did give
With honor to their country
They fought so we could live

Within the fields of battle
Upon the foreign shores
Each Veteran remembered
With honor and much more

Such glory and such honor
Within each war they fought
Pride we feel within our hearts
Such sadness for those lost

Flag they held still flying
With dignity so blest
Our heroes of the many wars
Have given all their best

Bow your heads in silence
For those who are not here
Remember all those living
Their courage we revere.
