"I met a soldier, on the base at Fort Hood.
I said, 'how do you do it?'
He said, 'there's bad with the good.'
And no matter how tough it gets,
The soldier stands strong.
Keeping our family, flag and country free,
And righting the wrong.
I met a soldier, she was thanking me.
At first it was strange to hear,
Then I started to see.
What it meant to have someone
Appreciate her sacrifice,
And everything she gives for us,
Defending our rights.
God bless the soldier
As they walk the streets.
Let them know how much it means
To have them keep our country free.
When you meet a soldier, stand and salute.
Take a moment to show your love
for everything that they do.
Don't be afraid, give them your praise.
For this is the stranger that is willing
To give their life for you.
God bless the soldier."
