Pass In Review

There is a simple truth throughout the USA


When our troops die in battle


Few care a Hero has passed away


Its a very common thing


That happens on too many days




Almost no one gives a second thought


When a Hero passes away


We drink and pursue our fondest desires


and celebrate another birthday




Yet, very few care, his have been taken away


The funerals are sad affairs the families gather on bleak days


There may even be protesters spouting in their vile ways




The Patriot Guard gathers to defend and to say


"I'm sorry for your loss on this most tragic of days."


Yet, every 30 minutes another Hero passes each day




Perhaps an unknown Veteran who's age seems to say


"I was the only one left and on this my last day


Thank God, someone cried and the flags flew today."




Tragically, many choose a harsher way.  


They take their lives, their hopes and dreams away.  


Twenty two, pass in review, each and every day



We ride and ride, and all of us pray



"We will ride until the Patriot Guard rides on our last day"
