They went when their nation called
To aid in the fight as they could
Not knowing if they would become causalities there
As many of them actually would

They were nurses,doctors, and clerks
Drove trucks, or maybe worked on a plane
Like the men, they put up with the stress and horror
Which could drive a person insane

They were there with the rest of the troops
They had to endure the heat and the smell
They suffered the rocket and mortar attacks
They spent their own time in Hell

It's been said many, many times over
"All gave some, and some gave all"
These ladies were ready to give what was needed
When they answered this great Country's call

I know they did not get what they should have
The recognition for a job quite well done
But, there is many a good soldier who is thankful for them
And, ladies, let me tell you, I'm one!
