What Rob said below..

I love this song not only because it reminds me of family, friends, and all my fellow citizens serving abroad, but also because the lyrics glorify not warrioring itself but rather the best of the just warrior tradition. Here’s my favorite line:

If you’re reading this
Half way around the world
I won’t be there
To see the birth of our little girl
I hope she looks like you
I hope she fights like me
Stand up for the innocent and weak

McGraw is subtly reminding us that we honor our troops – men and women – not simply because their service protects us, but also because, when they serve justly, it means they are protecting the innocent and the vulnerable in other lands too, even when that puts them at risk.
