This In Presentation... Camp Shanks Restoration Project, The Designation of Eagle Scout, Marco Amendola... IN VALOR...

In Valor

With Freedom's call, valor in praise be heard 
For the spoils of victory and liberation's word 
Hushed be the oppressive cry in anguish known
With Faith and noble deed in valor shown
This the dedication of those with freedom's vision held clear
Our gratitude to the sons and daughters whose sacrifices we ever to hold dear
It has been said no words can explain the wages of war we do spend
But for the freedoms and rights we are to defend
For those given to liberation and freedom's call
Blessed Be they who have given their All 
So let us with open hearts and grace
Live the divinity of gratitude within heart's place
Tears with loss of life we do shed and share
Yet know that in valor, souls soar high ever in God's embrace and care.
