Perhaps to be considered more in the mind set of WWI-WWII. Our men and women now are proud to stand for Australia- the army is their family. I raise my glass to them. Be proud and know we are proud of you.

Families huddled
hear their cries
Soldiers promises
may be lies

Ships pull out
She sounds her horn
Womens hearts
they feel torn

Out of sight
the soldiers hearts drop
Thinking of the enemy
Who'll be on top


The dust it swirls
Breathing is hard
Gas masks are on
What's your card?

The enemy draws close
The gun fires heard
The TV it shows
Wishing for the white bird

Conveys are seen
coming to the line
The tanks, they shoot
Can you guess the fine?

At home women pray
waiting for the end
Every week they write
To their loved ones they send

But the soldiers they fight
Our hero's they are
In a war over the ocean
In a land too far

With only memories
sweet memories to hold
The days grow long
And the memories grow old

Soldiers at war
It's our job they say
But will our hero's
Ever get their deserved pay

thanks fee- i always wondered about that. Thanks so much- its amazing how the words 'deserved pay' can mean so many things to those involved- to get what they deserve- to be able to make it home, to get the appreciation from their country and community, a feeling of completion and reward. Accomplishment. Pride. All the things one deserves after such an amazing job.

I love it, as the son of a Canadian World War II vet and the author of Red Soil the story of his times at war I can relate well to this. Only suggestion would be to add and adjective before pay int the last line...eg: deserved pay...just a thought.
