Our Shield


Let's say a little prayer
For the men and women over there
Please guard them and take care
Let 'em know we are aware.

Sand and wind will blow
We think of them they know
Why'd they have to go
To preserve freedom we know.

We back you to the hilt
Don't worry about guilt
It's so hot you almost melt
Our prayers I'm sure you've felt.

We're so proud of you we boast
We love each one the most
From the midwest to the coasts
We wait to be your hosts.

So hurry and return
Ignore a flag that burns
Great achievements you have earned
And lessons have been learned.
