At times of war, such as these,
Brave men and women are upon the seas
To aid in righting wrongs that have been done
For their families and loved ones at home, this is not fun

The soldiers and sailors are all so young
Their lives have really only just begun
Yet they fight and defend, more than a job to them
To assist in the cause called Enduring Freedom

Long days are the norm and the nights are even longer
As they envision families and friends far away and ponder
How they miss the simple things that we take for granted
Chocolate milkshakes and looking at flowers newly planted

So remember these gallant souls everyday
Praise them and appreciate them at home and so far away
A thankless job most of the time it seems
I'm thanking you now, and hold you in high esteem
