America's Greatest Heroes

There are those throughout
our cherished USA's history
who have gone above and beyond
the call of duty
disregarding self
to do what must be done
under the most dangerous situations
in unforgiving harm's way,
saving their band of brothers
that violent, bloody day
and keeping Old Glory flying high...
with many paying the ultimate sacrifice
for it to be so.

They are America's greatest heroes
who will always be immortalized
as Medal of Honor recipients...
proud, noble inspirations to all
who call the USA
the land of the free
and the home of the brave!
