From what I have seen
America is a well-oiled machine
Our military always ready to fight
Together with so much might
Leaving their homes night after night
Saying goodbye believing it's not your last sight
Living in a hole with rations and a bedroll
Or on a battleship ready to rip as they skip
To the next flip
In the air, so they can take care of our guys
As they buzz the sky blowing their targets up From way up high

Trained to shoot
Giving our enemies the boot
Standing proudly always ready to salute
The best at bagging America's enemies
So we might know this land of the free
Home to you and me	
Our sons and daughters they stand and fight
For our constitutional right
They constantly keep sight wearing their dog tags
Ready to go to their grave in any conflict wave

They pave the way so the rest of us
Have a world that's not ready to bust
Never look at what they do with disgust
Trust our generals do it because they must   
The people of the world need to stand strong   
So today's leaders will have to get along
 
Keeping balance in the kingdom of God  
Like a lightning rod ,all take their oath with a nod 
Live or die you will never hear them asking why
Americas bravest they fought the wars        	
So we might know this land of the free
This land God blessed for you and me

Let us all see our military is why we live free
Be sure and pray that they all find their way
Unfortunately, some are left as reminders
Of the price we had to pay for their valor
Until their last day

Be sure you stand up and say
Thank you for your service today
For the sacrifices you have made along the way
So we might know this land God blessed
For you and me

So we can live free 
Because our brothers and sisters
Gave up so much for you and me
They are still the gatekeepers
That holds the key
To why this land is still free
Like God intended it to be
