We remember our fallen heroes
On Memorial Day every year.
They died while serving our nation
And preserving freedom so dear.
Many lie in national cemeteries
Where a cross marks each grave.
We honor each one of these heroes.
For America, their lives they gave.
Sometimes I visit an old grave
Of a hero, my dear Uncle Dan.
He died fighting in World War Two.
He was a very courageous man.
I visit the graves of friends
Who made the ultimate sacrifice.
They gave their lives for America.
For freedom, they paid the price.
I thank God for all the heroes
Who died in such a brave way,
Whose blood was shed for America.
We will honor them on this day.
