Straight and proudly they stand,

The bravest ever seen.

Loving country more than life,

The United States Marine.


They live the Marine Corps motto.

Just two words, “Semper Fi”,

Meaning always faithful

Even if it means to die.


No matter when their service,

In a time of peace or war,

“Once a marine, always a marine.”

Comrades forevermore.


Protectors of our freedom,

America’s fighting machine.

The proud, the few, the respected.

The United States Marine.
