A Veteran is someone
I’m proud to know
They fought so hard
Never letting go

They left their families
Husbands, wives, and kids
To fight for my freedom
On foreign grids

They ask us for nothing
But our thanks we should give
For their time in hell
They must forever relieve

You’ll never understand
The hell they face
Running into battle
Their fear misplaced

Do not ask why
For you’re not entitled to know
An explanation is not something
A Veteran owes

If you still feel
You need to know
Sign that dotted line
Become a Joe

Become one of us
Under the shroud
A US Military Veteran
The few, and the proud
