A fellow patriot wrote this moving song and the music on Veterans Day in 2007 . . . then finished its video over Thanksgiving in 2007 . . . All in dedication to America's fallen war heroes.
On the airfield tarmac A plane from far away Honor guards bring coffins Out the cargo bay. Families are waiting Friends are standing by. Heroes on their last trip home. And you need to know
|| We are past the glory We are past the fame They are gone forever If we're never calling out their names ||
What we tell our children Why we went to war Why we went abroad - and What we're fighting for Fight for all our freedom Fight for human rights This is why they gave their lives And you need to know
They are not statistics Of casualties of war. Someone lost a daughter Someone lost a dad Someone lost a sister Someone lost a son They came home just one last time And you need to know
|| Repeat ||
Tributes in their honor Tell their fate in stone Tell us what they fought for What they let forgo Tell us what the price is For freedom we enjoy. That they died for you and me Is that, what you must know.
