To they who have passed on the torch of freedom; You live on in our hearts and minds. And to the next generation of patriots who must pick up that torch and carry on; May the grace of God be with you on your watch!
Please remember the valiant ones today,
The Valiant One
Rest in peace oh, valiant one
your mission accomplished
and a job well done!
Our nation’s freedom remain intact
because, for those like you
she’s never lacked.
They who serve for freedom’s cause
deserve all honors
Liberty survives now, thanks to you
and all your comrades
brave and true.
So rest in peace oh, valiant one
you’ve been relieved,
your watch is done!
