I am a United States Veteran

I left home at eighteen
To fight in lands you've never seen
Except for on the TV screen
Baby killer some of you cry
You didn't have to chose to live or die
You spit on us and call us cowards
When we die you'll bring no flowers
You show up to protest our fight
You believe that it's your right
Yet you lack the nerve to stand with us and fight
I did what I did for this great land
Now you come by and spit where I stand
I go where I must for Uncle Sam
To protect those I love in this great land
For you I put my life on the line
Now the VA can't see me in time
Tho my time of service has come to an end
I'll still defend this country to my very end
I am a United States Veteran
