Look at them...who are they??
I'd really like to know.
These gallant young men that stand
readty to defend & challenge our nations foe.
You may ask this question when
you come upon this scene,
When there's a crisis in our world & all seems dim..Just call on any
It was "1775" when
they formed into the Corps.
to fight & defend our country on many a distant shore.
The fought in actions around
the world & they earned a new respect,
they seved with pride & honor to become known as: "LEATHERNECK!"
In world war one at "Belleau
Wood" with a courage that few had seen,
they painted our history with valor,
DEVIL DOG!! a name for a "MARINE."
In world war two in the pacific
they planted their courageous seed !
Then again in Korea & Vietnam to become know as "THE BREED!"
It doesn't matter what action
in which they may serve,
they are Marines..."THE BREED!"
an honor well deserved.
In peace they carry the legacy
of those that have gone before,
These young men are ..."THE BREED!"
"The heart of the Corps!!"
