Building bridges

A tribute to those who serve, past and present

Blazing trails through summer’s hot dust
Riding hard through winter’s cold slush
Building bridges previously crushed
Climbing ridges when you must
Facing each challenge when put to the test
With a warrior’s heart you’re the best of the best
On justified missions to save the oppressed
Destroying those that cause harm in your quest
With a warrior’s wrath your targets will bleed
Yet you’re not to be feared to those in need
Bringing light and hope to those that have none
Keeping the good afloat and the bad on the run
With a war painted face and a heart of gold
You are never hated once your story is told
For all our ranks this tribute’s for you
A heartfelt thanks for all you do
And to those lives lost to sacrifice
May you forever rest in paradise.
