Stand at Attention

Dedicated to all of our military who have ever and now serve.


Stand at attention, hand over heart

As those of the military pass by in whole or in part

Persons of note in somebody's life

Heading out to help keep us from strife


Stand at attention, hand over heart

These brave men and women doing their part

To keep us safe from our enemies'  hands

Strong in the right taking their brave stands


Around the world they selflessly serve

A standing salute is the least they deserve

So, stand at attention, hand over heart

Praying for our military as they do their part


Stand at Attention (c)2009  Quentin Clingerman
