A Marine is a warrior; lean and mean.
A time honored preserver of the American dream.
He's first into battle; the first to fight.
The solid backbone of America's might

A Marine is a lover of country and faithful to the Corps.
A respected peace-keeper from shore to shore.
From the Halls of Montezuma to the hills of Vietnam,
He has given his life to keep his Country from harm.

Semper Fidelis is his Motto and Creed
Forged in the fire, he's a Devil Dog Breed.
Eagle, Globe and Anchor - Air, Land and Sea
all belong to the United States Marine
