Up and at'em early each day.
by Jesse Bauer
Long before the sun would rise.
Strapping boots to his eager feet,
wiping sleep from his waking eyes.
Fatigues worn with strength and courage,
this is a uniform of pride.
A life devoted to his liberal purpose.
brothers in arms at his side.
America's pride. Our hopefuls and heroes.
Sons and daughters of Red, White, and Blue.
Protecting and serving our free nation.
Duty and honor, a soldier's due.
Standing tall at the base of our flag.
A soldier lives for all that is right.
Not just for himself or his family,
but for his countrymen he fights.
