An open letter from our Kenyan men and women currently serving in the Kenya Defense Forces
"When Duty Calls"
I am a Kenyan who stands proud and tall
I am a patriot who heard the call
I could be the kid you knew next door
The one you don’t see around anymore
Maybe you have wondered, where did he go
It’s sad to say, you just don’t know
You have seen me many times before
Never knowing I went off to war
Perhaps you caught a glimpse of me on TV
But did not know I‘m who keeps you free from alshabab
If you have trouble with my name
Remember, I do my job and seek no fame
People call me a hero of late
But I think it’s always been my fate
And if I see God’s bright light
I know my sacrifice was right
I am Kenyan who stands proud and tall
I am patriot who heard the call
I am a Soldier and that is all"
Remember us in your prayers................. "Operation Linda Nchi"
