For all those who've made a deterrent patrol

41 For Freedom

Hidden deep

below the sea

live the men

who keep the peace

Grouped in crews

of blue and gold

highly skilled

both young and old

Balistic birds

prepared to soar

giant pawns

of a political war

Nothing less

than perfection allowed

41 for freedom

stand tall and proud

Named for heros

the world beknown

cold war icons

the seas they roam

They sailed for freedom

for one and all

perched and ready

to answer the call

Most are history

a time long gone

leaving the Tridents

to carry on

The cold wars over

the world, a better place

41 for freedom,

protecting the human race
