I wonder if you’ll ponder throughout the war-torn day
if anyone is thinking of you in a loving way.
I wonder if you’ll doubt whether people really care
that you’re fighting for our breath of glorious freedom air.
I wonder if you’ll hope when awakened with a start
if someone can relate to the trembling in your heart.
I wonder if you’ll understand decisions others choose
should they be walking enemy lines in your battle shoes.
I wonder if you’ll sense when danger blocks your goal
that someone has been praying for the safety of your soul.
I wonder if you’ll question when your service there is done
whether people will be thankful when the war is won.
Americans are grateful. We see your sacrifice.
Your courage and decision to pay our freedom’s price.
We wonder if you’ll comprehend, we too can’t sleep at night.
We’re fretful of the battles, and pray you’ll be all right.
We wonder if you’ll recognize, we cherish all you do–
making this commitment–we’re truly proud of you.
May God protect our troops, and the red, white, and blue.
You are America’s best, the brave and the true.
