Some came of their free choice
Others heard their neighbor’s voice
Leaving behind all that they knew
Signed up for the red white and blue
Drill instructors were in charge
Hair styles no longer large
Cut right down to a light gray
The new recruits had little say
They shipped them out to foreign shores
Some never to see us any more
Others suffered awful wounds
That didn’t heal with snappy tunes
These patriots served and others ducked
They took deferments just their luck
We’re proud of those in uniform
The cowards all deserve our scorn
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
Tight lyric with a pointed message. Well done!
A great salute to our Veterans! Although I did not serve myself I certainly understand the situation and have a nephew serving right now in Afganistan. Thanks for this song and being a patriot.
