Young and old, brave our best_ we should distinguish them from all the rest.
We owe them all this country has to give_ so that our lives and liberty will always live.
Do you not remember who started this fate_ when they came to our country filled with hate?
Who stands between us and them_ who is ready to give life and limb?
It is our citizens, women and men, from far and wide_ who stand in front of us side by side.
They gave and give all_ they who answer the call.
So when you see our Flag tattered it may be_ those red stripes are blood given for thee.
Those stars are hearts that may never again beat_ remember this, remember this, they do not know defeat.
When the time comes they stand tall_ they are the ones who are ready to give all.
Remember this when you see our Flag.
That blue patch is oceans they have crossed_ to lands of sweat and lands of frost.
Those stars are the faces of those who have died_those that stand in front of us, side by side.
So when you look up and see the Stars and Stripes_just remember, remember who protects your rights.
Mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers_ from across this land that this cloth covers.
Thanks also to JK York for some changes he recommended.
