Preamble to Veteranís Day

 
Binding of the Stars and Stripes
death and bloodstained sacrifice
arduously stitch our glorious flag

Breathed in revolutionís fire
vision transformed to trial

of humankind

Can we fulfill ideals sublime
that planted a nation under God

Where perfection lags we struggle on
our sorrows worthy of the crown

to glow above each tear-stained eye
paid in the storm of prophecy
