We take them all for granted, and what they do for us each day.
They don't do it for the glory, or the praise, or even pay.
They do it because that's who they are, and who they'll always be.
They spend their lives protecting us, our homes, and family.
They are the men and women, who never hesitate to do their part.
Though we don't always tell them, we still keep them in our heart.
They are the police and firefighters, and our military to.
They are the unsung heroes and we are thankful for what they do.
