Proud to be An American

Thank you to all of the servicemen and women who have fought for our rights to be Americans, for our liberty, our freedom, and for justice. The sacrifices you have made and continue to make cannot be understood by all of us civilians, but we are eternally grateful and offer the utmost respect to you, today and everyday. Happy Veterans Day.

God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood

If tomorrow all the things were gone

I’d worked for all my life,

And I had to start again

with just my children and my wife,

I’d thank my lucky stars

to be living here today,

‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom

and they can’t take that away.

And I’m proud to be an American

where at least I know I’m free,

And I won’t forget the men who died

who gave that right to me,

And I gladly stand up next to you

and defend her still today,

‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land

God Bless the U.S.A.

From the lakes of Minnesota

to the hills of Tennessee,

Across the plains of Texas

from sea to shining sea.

From Detroit down to Houston

and New York to L.A.,

well There’s pride in every American heart

and it’s time we stand and say:

that I’m proud to be an American

where at least I know I’m free,

And I won’t forget the men who died

who gave that right to me,

And I gladly stand up next to you

and defend her still today,

‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land

God Bless the U.S.A.
