Wall of Freedom

by Cpl Daniel Snuffer, USMC, 1972
1/9/3 - "The Walking Dead"

There is a wall of freedom itís location you just canít see.
Made of flesh and blood by those who fight for you and me.
You hear nicknames like flyboy, squid, jarhead, and doggie.
They fight for the love of freedom and for others to be free.

There are no odds they can not face in any adversity.
They risk life and limb for something most canít see.
Not made of brick or mortar but just as hard as steel.
When they draw their battle line you know that wall is real.

There are no trials they can not face in death or injury.
They risk there lives and future for others to be free.
Not made of brick or mortar but as hard as hardened steel.
When they hold you in their arms you know that wall is real.

For there is a wall of Freedom itís something you can surely feel.
When you love a serviceman or woman you know that wall is real.
Theyíre not so proud or brazen but defenders of the free.
They risk it all for freedom and folks like you and me.
