Purple Heart Day 8/7/2019


Each Purple Heart shall always be
A part of freedom's history

Hold deep inside a fervent pride
For all who gave, the brave who died

They showed their best for liberty
They stood for us with certainty

Their wound of war, their Purple Heart
Each dared to care and do their part

Some bore a wound which took their life
While others lived past war's honed knife

True patriots, they faced their call
To keep our nation strong for all

Deep scars of war are carried by
Those who return, and those who cry

Pray for the brave, their loved ones too
Thank God for heroes - all of you
