While the conflict ended decades ago, “it is never too late to say ‘Welcome Home,’ The wounds are deep and the recognition of service is slow to come for those that served in Vietnam.
To all the unsung heroes Who deserve their special day Welcome Home Though many years have passed I hope it’s not too late to say Welcome Home
You went to war believing That you had a job to do And though it wasn’t easy I’m so glad you made it through And I think it’s time we told you all How proud we are of you Welcome Home
Though memories can be painful And some wounds are slow to heal Welcome Home Your people now are ready To tell you how we feel Welcome Home
In the footsteps of your fathers Who fought in Freedom’s name And your grandfathers before them Who played War’s deadly game You followed their example Did your duty just the same Welcome Home
I hope we’ve gained the wisdom now To understand the cost Welcome Home And though it won’t relieve the pain Of good friends you have lost Welcome Home
As we take a quiet moment To remember those who fell In the jungles and the paddies On the battlefields of Hell We give thanks for the survivors And we raise our voice to yell
