These Medals on our chest

These Medals on our chest

We gave it all, we gave our best
Now we wear these medals on our chest
A piece of ribbon tied to this pin
We wear them proudly on our uniforms

A Bronze Star, Purple Heart and many more
They tell the story of the things we did
The battles we fought and the wounds we got
The places we've been and the things we seen

We fought our battles with nothing to show
But these damn little medals with ribbons attached
Yet we wear them proudly for all to see

We would gladly trade these medals you see
For peace of mind and our sanity
Because the scars inside will never heal.
