Honoring those who lost their lives for our freedom

Oh Beautiful
                                For Heroes Proved 


 In Liberating Strife  

 Who more than self 
 their country loved

 
And mercy more than life

America America

May God thy gold refine

'till all success be nobleness

And every gain divine.
