Hail To The Soldiers

Hail to the soldiers that have provided us our freedom and comfortable lifestyle.  May our current troops come home safely.

I grew up in a house with a marine where the Marine Core Hymn was whistled every morning.  God bless them all.

Robert F. Barrell - Korea
PRB - A Wannabe Marine
BEB - Everyone beware!
From the Halls of Montezuma

To the shores of Tripoli

We fight our country's battles

In the air, on land and sea

First to fight for right and freedom

And to keep our honor clean;

We are proud to claim the title

Of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze

From dawn to setting sun;

We have fought in every clime and place

Where we could take a gun.

In the snow of far-off Northern lands

And in sunny tropic scenes;

You will find us always on the job --

The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps

Which we are proud to serve;

In many a strife we've fought for life

And never lost our nerve.

If the Army and the Navy

Ever look on Heaven's scenes,

They will find the streets are guarded
