U.S.M.C.

By Melvin Alexander, Army

Writing Type: Poem

I always wanted to be a United States Marine,
first to arrive and Last to leave a scene.
Steeped in tradition and esprit de corps,
Semper Fi is our motto, our way of life, and what we stand for.
Chesty Puller led the way. He was a fine Marine,
stressed his love and patriotism, his commitment to the team.
Marine he was, is, and always will be,
one o,f the many fine men to build and shape Marine Corps history.
Iwo Jima showed our mettle for a watching world to see
as we proudly crested the hill, Stars and Stripes blowing free.
From Korea's Chosen Reservior, to Khe Sahn in Vietnam,
Marines have done the things that America needed done.
Safe and secure, Americans can live their dreams,
knowing that their freedom's assured by the United States Marines.
