Our Brave Service Members and Vets

by Lance S. Loria

Our nation is home of the brave.
Brave soldiers that protect and save.
Save us with lives they gave.
Gave acts of valor in a combat shockwave.
Shockwave explosions as our fighting slave.
Slave to glory and path they pave.
Pave the future how they behave.
Behave as warriors without any rave.
Rave we cast upon them which they waive.
Waive by returning soldiers for those in the grave.
Grave business so to the fallen our flag does wave.
