Our Nation’s flag waves proudly,

from sea to shining sea;

As an emblem of our freedom,

and for God and liberty.

 

But freedom isn’t really free.

It has tremendous cost,

paid by our Armed Forces

with each precious life that’s lost.

 

And it’s the final breath of these,

our Country’s proud and brave,

that is the force that moves the wind

and makes Old Glory wave.
