"What Soldiers Do" as written by and Trent Monk Michael Neagle....
Come and walk with me, my son;
I need to share my heart.
Tomorrow when the morning comes,
I’m headed off to war.
Take care of your mother
And your little brother, too.
I’m praying that I’ll be home soon,
So I can be with you.

I know you’re only 10 years old;
I know that you’re afraid.
But I need you to be brave for me,
And for the family.
I know it’s hard to see me cry,
But put your mind at ease;
God is watching over us
So we can be at peace.

With all my heart,
I can’t wait to tuck you in
And sing a song to you.
Son, stand strong;
Love is the reason I would give myself for you,
‘Cause that’s what soldiers do.

Remember what I taught you now
About how to be a man:
Talk with God throughout the day,
He will help you stand
With faith to see, hope to believe,
And love for everyone.
Know that I’m so proud of you
And I will always love you, son

With all my heart,
I want to take you to our favorite place
And catch a fish or two.
Son, stand strong;
Love is the reason I would give myself for you,
‘Cause that’s what soldiers do.

And as I go, I want you to know: If I don’t make it home,
You are gonna be alright;
I’m telling you, son, you’re gonna touch the sky.
Don’t lose hope, just lift your eyes;
We’ll be together again some day.

So with all my heart,
Hold on to Jesus, son
And He will lead you through.
Son, stand strong;
You may never go to war,
But you’re a soldier too.
And when you have a son like you,
Teach him to fight for what is true
‘Cause that’s what soldiers do.
