He stands tall and proud, a marine...to my Daddy

Going into a war zone at barely 18. 
He stands tall and proud, a marine. 

He went in, he rescued, he secured. 
He stands tall and proud, a marine.

He saw much, did much, fought hard, cried hard.
He stands tall and proud, a marine.

Wounded in battle, he did not retreat. Came home to protests & peace signs.
He stands tall and proud, a marine.

A purple heart he is awarded...and nightmares that reoccur.
He stands tall and proud, a marine.

Pain still shoots through his shoulder. He would not change a thing.
He stands tall and proud, a marine.

He taught his children to love their country, respect those who serve their country.
He stands tall and proud, a marine.

The flag waves, his hand over his heart...
He stands tall and proud, a marine.

Thank you Daddy...my tall and proud marine!
