View Full Version : Happy 229th Birthday USMC

11-10-2004, 09:36 AM
From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli,
We will 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 Marines.

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 by United States Marines.

Happy Birthday to all the men and women who serve or have served in our beloved Corps! OOOOH-RAAH!!

Semper Fidelis

What ever you do, never ever ever call a Marine a "Sea-going Bellhop". /ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif

Sorry it's late.

Semper FI!

Btw..looking at the picture reminded me of some of the interesting conversations with people that believe that the Marine Corps is an element of the Navy...due to the "Department of the Navy".
