My Hero

My hero is a US Marine
Different from anything I’ve ever seen

He is my brother
Couldn’t have a prouder mother
Works harder than no other

Always so clean and so respectful
Never rude and always helpful

Has a great job and a great plan
Living his life stationed in Japan
Shout out to the troops in Afghanistan

Travels the world by land, air, and sea
The motto, honor courage commitment followed to a tee

Hasn’t been home for Christmas in four years
Coming home soon has momma in tears

He will leave once again on the bus
All of the families are in a fuss
I can’t wait for the day where it will just be us
