- First to fight for the right,
- And to build the Nation’s might,
- And the Army goes rolling along.
Others wear dog tags.
The Coast Guard's in the fight.
Destroying subs and landing troops,
The Axis feels our might.
Climbing high into the sun!
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings, ever to soar!
We live in fame or go down in flame. (Hey!)
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!
And full disclosure: this was actually made in honor of the Royal Canadian Air Force, but it was too gorgeous not to share. So, Canada, there's one for you. :)
This fighter pilot helmet had me doing a double-take.
- Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh!
- Farewell to foreign shores,
- We sail at break of day, of day.
- Through our last night on shore,
- Drink to the foam,
- Until we meet once more.
- Here's wishing you a happy voyage home!
- 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.
Happy Memorial Day, everyone!
