TO ALL TRUE NAVY WIVES

 TO ALL TRUE NAVY WIVES

TO ALL TRUE NAVY WIVES OUT THERE,
WE ARE GRATEFUL TO ALL OF YOU,
WHO KEEP THE HOME FIRES BURNING,
IN SPITE OF ALL THAT YOU MUST DO.

WE GIVE THANKS TO ALL YOU NAVY WIVES,
FOR THE SUPPORT THAT YOU SEND,
FOR THE EMAILS AND THE LETTERS,
THAT GET SENT TO ALL US MEN.

WE ENDURE SO MANY HARDSHIPS,
US SAILORS, AND YOU WIVES.
BUT THIS IS HOW OUR FREE COUNTRY SAYS,
THAT WE MUST LIVE OUR LIVES.

SO MANY ARE PROUD OF ALL US SAILORS,
FOR KEEPING THIS COUNTRY FREE,
BUT IF THEY KNEW WHAT YOU GO THROUGH,
HOW DIFFERENT THINGS WOULD BE.


YOU WIVES WOULD GET THE MEDALS,
AND A TWENTY YEAR COLLEGE DEGREE,
FOR THE HARDSHIPS YOU ENDURE FOR US,
TO KEEP THIS COUNTRY FREE.
