P&p :- The “Marines’ Hymn”

Just want to do a shout out to my fellow Marines and just say Semper-fi. I am and always will be a Maine. Thank you guys and gals for all you do to make keep our country safe.

Now, not everyone will agree, but we are the best damn fighting force around.

From the Halls of Montezuma

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We fight our country’s battles
On the lands, and on the 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

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

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We fight our country’s battles
On the lands, and on the 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
