Salute Our Soldiers

 Soldiers are a country’s wealth

Guard your nation and your wealth

Leave their homes to keep you safe

 Stay in places you never dwell

Scale the terrain hard to trail

Eat the food you never accept

 

 Valor is their middle name

Live for the nation and die for it

March forward and never retreat

Round the clock they are on guard

Keep you safe from enemies abroad

 

They are the pride of every heart

Salute them for their mettle and might

 Bow to their parents for their sacrifice

    No it's for the universal Soldier.I mean a real one who does not kill people for fun

    • Doggerel Dave

      I would think that most soldiers don't kill for fun.The point is, why do they kill at all......?

      Armies are needed, sadly, as much now as ever. The threat of war is always there.

    • Thekkinkkattil

      Yes only that they should be to defend and to bully

      Not an easy job by any means .. dirty dangerous and often maligned .. a fine tribute to all those men and women that do the job many others would never dare dream of doing .......................... N
