Protest The War Not The Warrior

Served a year in that damn war
Doing what Uncle Sam called me for

Didn't know the violence stateside
Busy trying to save my own hyde 

Riots on the campus lawn
Students struck with the baton

In the streets were riots a plenty
Not just some there were many

I was sheltered from it all
Working long and taking call

Coming home was another war 
Protesters met me at the shore

Protest the war I'll join you there
Respect the medic I was unaware

I was just doing my job
Outside the wire of my FOB

Now I go welcome them back
Cheer them as they step the tarmac

I want to try to make it right
Our history I seek to rewrite
