OUR MISSION

Standing on the fore front of adversity
We hold true to all that we have learned
Rising to the call of our country
Willing to die for the rights we've earned

As the people of the world come together
People of every race, religion and color
To stand against these tyrants of terror
Every man standing, now our brother

We fight for honor, life and freedom
Our family, friends and loved ones
We fight for a peace that may never come
We shoulder this burden for our sons

Despite how the world views our life
We chose this, it was our decision
No matter the pain, ridicule and strife
We are Soldiers, this is our mission
