Where Eagles Dare to Go


He is leaving to go and fly
this Airman, soldier, brother, son
He leaves to soar up so high
where only eagles dare to go.

He is leaving to write his own life's chapter
up among the clouds where only eagles dare to go.
He is leaving to make his mark upon the world,
and add his soul to that blood red stripe
he is going where only eagles dare to go.

He is leaving and if his destination is heaven
please let me catch a glimpse of his sacrificial soul
where only the eagles dare to go.

I have to let him go to make his life among the eagles
I will see him make his mark upon the pages of our history
where only the eagles dare to go.
