War is not always in vain, but sometimes it is out of the push for power hiding behind ill intentions. Either way, in their hearts and with their lives, our soldiers are attempting to protect us and keep us from being over taken by evil forces outside our own nation. I believe it is our service duty to morally support them and their families. We often here stories of brave soldiers and wounded soldier, but how often do we stop to think of the daily lives their families that are left behind have to deal with. Mothers bearing children and giving birth without their husband there to experience the new life he helped create. Children's first words or first steps or birthdays pass by without mommy or daddy. Someone has to do the job, and we thank all of our service men and women, past and present, for doing it so we don't have to. Thank you to all of the families that support their soldiers, and that bear the lonely months/years without them so they can protect us.

"I'm Comin’ Home to You"

Vs 1:

You heard the words and could not speak,

The words of fear that made you weak.

But it’s my duty to keep you safe,

There’s a pride and honor I can’t forsake.

They called my name… I’ve gotta go,

Its war with a future we do not know.

Ch:

Tie that yellow ribbon, Tight around that tree.

Wave the spangled banner high, For everyone to see.

We’re fightin’ for our country, With family in our heart,

Bonded brothers in uniform, Just tryin’ to do our part.

I’ll be comin’ home, baby, This I promise you.

But if I don’t, please remember… I did it all for you…

And my Red, White, and Blue.

Vs 2:

To feel your arms around my neck,

To hold you close on that flight deck.

Hug my new baby and touch your face,

They’re the dreams in my soul, I can’t replace.

Tonight I may hold this gun, But my thoughts are clear and few,

Baby… I’m comin’ home to you.

Ch:

So keep that yellow ribbon, Tied tight around that tree.

Wave the spangled banner high, For all of us to see.

We’re fightin’ for our country, With family in our heart,

Bonded brothers in uniform, Just tryin’ to do our part.

I’ll be comin’ home, baby, This I promise you.

But if I don’t, please remember… I did it all for you…

And my Red, White, and Blue.

Vs 3:

Days here are long, In a job that doesn’t end,

To be courageous and strong, Is what we all pretend.

Your quiet prayers and pain-filled tears, We feel ‘em deep within,

They give us hope and give us strength, In every battle that we win.

Keep the love a comin’, We really need it now,

To remember what we’re fightin’ for. . . It’s our solemn vow.

Ch:

So keep that yellow ribbon, Tied tight around that tree.

Wave the spangled banner high, ‘Cause that’s our victory.

We’re fightin’ for our country, With family in our heart,

Bonded brothers in uniform, Just tryin’ to do our part.

I’ll be comin’ home, baby, This I promise you.

But if I don’t, please remember… I did it all for you…

All your prayers and tears are comin’ through…

Just know… I did it all for you…

And my Red, White, and Blue.

America… I’m comin’ home to you.

Oh, my Red, White, and Blue.

Coming Home

      We can support the military and their families even if we do not necessarily support the politics behind why they are asked to fight. It is so unfortunate that there are casualties of lives lost as well as families broken as a result.

      War is unfortunate, but it will always be around as long as there are opposing views and strives for dominating power. BUT we must morally support those who's hearts are fighting for a pure cause.

      I can't stop hating war. So pointless to see beautiful lives wasted.

      The song is very emotional and I would love to hear it accompanied with guitar.

      I wish you all the best.

      Regards,

      Alma
