Thank You For Serving Thanksgiving - To Our Troops

Thank you for serving Thanksgiving for me
For signing your life for our country's belief
That only through sacrifice can we truly be free
Thank you for serving Thanksgiving for me.

All through the year we try to support
Our troops and their families
And the lives they fight for
But no matter how many holidays are red, white and blue
It's never enough - so this year, Thanksgiving's for you.

Thank you for leaving your families behind
For living without comforts to keep you alive
Thank you for knowing tomorrow you could die
So our children can hear hope in your battle cry.

Thanksgiving is for taking a moment to pray
For uniting our families and friends on this day
But the one thing we need to remember is clear
There are heroes serving Thanksgiving this year.

Only through your sacrifice can we truly be free
Thank you for serving Thanksgiving for me.
