The honor of service...

A pride defind by a history edged in stone. 

An honor that expounds and exudes ones on 

selfish needs and sets a standard to be 

followed by all. We have all been 

given the blessing of our mothers and fathers to serve, 

they have unselfishly surrendered their faith in our 

mission and our superiors to lead us to victory. 

We serve with a pride undefind and 

yet true. We honor those who came before us, 

by not allowing the needs of one to dominate 

the needs of the common goal. We set that 

goal as a cohesive unit bound by words that 

many may never hear. 

Together we have forged a path united as one. 

We honor God and our country as we proudly serve 

in the United States Marine Corps... Pride, honor and 

respect until the day we die... Whoorah!

    Nice poem. But, truly, MAN, as a whole wants nothing to do with his FELLOW man. This world and all brotherhood in it is dead. What we have now are tiny sectors of lost souls binding their beliefs to systems rather then themselves. In short, a 4th generation american, a family deeply rooted in our military, I too dream of what it must feel like to depend on someone other then myself.You embrace that cohesive unit, Marine. I wish you glory & most of all strength in YOURSELF! YOU! not the veneer!
