#ArmedForcesDay

A day to thank them
A day to show appreciation
A day to say thanks for all we have
A day to say thanks for all they sacrifice

Fathers
Sons
Mothers
Daughters

Our lives
Our families
Everything around us
But not theirs, theirs was sacrificed

For Queen
For country
For right, not wrong
They lay down their lives for us

Return home safely
Return home proud
Some sadly will not
But lest we forget

Heroes are all
Heroes for all they do
Heroes who look after us all
For once, just once…

Let’s treat them like heroes
Let’s not forget them
Let’s show our support
Like they showed theirs for us

HEROES!
