Dedicated to men and women of the military who have given their lives for our freedom
I first met him in Kindegarden many years ago.
He was an enthusiastic child
He loved to dress up as a G.
As time went on he got more wild.
In High School he was an Honors Student
He was captain of the football team
Allthough he wasnt very prudent
He was determined to follow his dream.
I remember the first day of school
He said he wanted to be Marine
Most people thought he was a fool
But he was the bravest I've ever seen.
And after High School Graduation
We all went on to College
While he decided to serve his nation
That was courage I acknowledge.
Now i see him here today
In a box wrapped with Red, White, and Blue
How he died, I cannot say
But he was brave, that much is true.
He gave his life for his country
His name Private Johnny Kevin
So we can forever be free
Now he walks the streets of Heaven.
Remember a soldiers sacrifice
They died for me and you
Freedom comes at a heavy price
Thank them for all that they do.
