"Let the generations know that women in uniform also guaranteed their freedom.  That our resolve was just as great as the brave men who stood among us.  And with victory our hearts were just as full and beat just as fast ----- that the tears fell just as hard for those we left behind."   ARMY NURSE, WWII
I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU

You were born in California
New York and Tennessee
You ar every generation's hope
Of all that we can be
All this land between the oceans
Is the home that you defend
You're my mother, you're my daughter
My sister, my friend

No one ever had to ask you
It seemed you always knew
Standing up for what you know is right
Is all that you could do
Not one to look the other way
You chose to serve with pride
And dared to cross the bounderies
Knowing God was on your side

And I will always remember you
For you remembered me
Always there when I needed you
Always there protecting my freedom
How could I ever forget you
You, who always came through
For duty, honor, country
I will always remember you

How you taught us strength and courage
And the will to never fail
And that through ever conflict
Somehow triumph would prevail
You made your peace with history
And stand among the brave
No more the unsung hero
For you our banners wave








































And I will always remember you
For you remembered me
Always there when I needed you
Always there protecting my freedom
How could I ever forget you
You, who always came through
For duty, honor, country
I will always remember you
