HAPPY 231st BIRTHDAY USMC
For all of those who fought and died,
And, for those who have survived.
Sometimes what’s dealt in life is rotten,
But, their Corps pride they’ve not forgotten.
To our brotherhood we will always hold,
Doesn’t matter if we are young or old.
Gone from this earth or in another land,
We’re sure that you will understand.
Although we are not there with you,
Within our hearts our creed holds true.
You have left no one behind;
My brother, you just bought us time.
Though you may not be here for the celebration,
You will look down in admiration.
Of the tradition that we all hold so dear,
We know, dear friends, your soul is here.
So on this day
Whether here or there,
We want you to know brothers,
That we still care.
So here’s a toast to one and all:
GOD, CORPS, AND COUNTRY! BLESS THEM ALL!
