The sun shines bright, burning hot
as we watch from this tarmac.
In boonie hats and digital cams
straight and tall, brave young men.
No tears of joy will fall today,
As you march off into harm's way.
On bended knee we stop and pray,
for a safe return to this tarmac.
In digital cams, with boonie in hand.
