David G. Bancroft, Founder of USA Patriotism!I wrote "On Bended Knee" in 2004 as a prayer for American troops in harms way and their loved ones waiting for their safe return to them . . . as our youngest son did after his tour in Iraq during 2003. And its 2012 video continues to reflect my sincere appreciation for our brave troops with special thoughts for those who remain in harm's way and the ones who will one day do the same for our beloved America's sake!

Nor can words adequately express the heart grabbing emotions that loved ones proudly endure each waking moment . . . waiting for the blessed return home.

David G. Bancroft, USA Patriotism! Founder 

On Bended Knee country as flag

On bended knee
I pray to THEE...

Watch over all our loved ones
be it friends, parents, spouses, daughters, or sons...
as they serve us all,
proudly standing brave and tall,
never wavering from their country's call,
knowing that they may fall,
paying the ultimate sacrifice
with only memories of them to cherish and suffice.

Give the troops strength to endure...
remain focus, steadfast and sure,
throughout each day of their tour,
keeping our homeland safe and secure.

Comfort those they love,
waiting anxiously for safe return,
in hope that faith in YOU above,
softens their heartfelt concern.

Protect this great nation
against all who conspire directly or with fašade,
as the intent of America's noble creation
was based on being under one God.

Man on knees devoutly praying with "praying hands sculpture" in background.
