Those who served will understand the wolf pack:
A brotherhood. We had each other’s back.
You mess with the pack--you get attacked.
We were fearless; death was just a thing.
It was better to be frozen with fear and fight,
than to be a coward who hides in plain sight!
Our hair may be gray; we may move a little slower.
But remember a wolf pack is for life.
Hear us howl! We own the night!
We traverse oceans, jungles, desert sands,
unseen and ready to fight.
Do yourself a favor; escape and evade; run and hide.
We have vowed to defend your freedom with our lives.
And we’ll fight our enemy with all our might.
