Thanks to the men and women
Who choose to wear uniforms
Answering the call for help
Into heroes they're transformed

Someone cries out in pain
At an accident scene
Answering the call for help
Is an EMS team

There's a house on fire
Someone's little boy hides
Answering the call for help
Firemen go inside

Someone needs E.R. care
Injured, or taken ill
Answering the call for help
Doctors and nurses will

Someone has just been robbed
Suffered a vicious crime
Answering the call for help
The police force this time

Somewhere disaster strikes
A sudden storm goes through
Answering the call for help
A search and rescue crew

And if a war breaks out
It doesn't matter where
Answering the call for help
Our military's there

Thanks to the men and women
Who choose to wear uniforms
Answering the call for help
Into heroes they're transformed

They do what they love best
Despite the threat to their lives
Answering the call for help
The heroes have arrived

They don't like the limelight
But they're my shining stars
Answering the call for help
Superheroes, above par

*thank you* for answering OUR calls for help

What a beautifully written tribute! At first I thought this was only going to be about the armed forces, but you've included all of the special, unique people that we all count on when we're in need. Excellently written! They would all be proud!
