US Protectors

                         "US Protectors"


                      true mile high fliers
                      the United States Air Force
                      wild blue yonder guys

                      the Army Rangers
                      those being all they can be
                      boots on the ground troops

                     the Semper Fi guys
                     United States Marine Corps
                     first in and last out

                     special forces guys
                     the elite Navy Seals team
                     orders for take outs

Dies A Soldier

Decides the leader,
 from his ranch gives an order -
  dies a poor soldier.
