For Heroes proved In liberating strife

O beautiful for heroes proved In liberating strife.
Who more than self the country loved
And mercy more than life!
America! America!
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness
And every gain divine!

We are so blessed to have and to have had the many who make up the military of America. Currently we have so many of our troops who willingly return for a second or third time to Iraq and Afghanistan for the 'liberating strife' needed to free millions of people from brutal regimes. The nobleness of the mission is seldom given any media attention but I do believe it is noble to free our brothers and sisters who have experienced such depraved leaders. I honor those who fought to defend our nation in wars long past to guard the freedom and liberty as I honor our current military. May God bless their efforts to allow two nations to experience democracy and liberty.
