I've got a half brother that's in the marines...havn't seen nor heard from him in about 10 or twelve years...last I knew, he went to Afghanistan, but that was years ago. He had written my dad to tell him he was ok and that he couldn't tell just where he was going...I wouldn't recognize him to this day, I've only met him a couple of times when I was really young...but yes, I am quite proud to have a brother in the marines...

My grandfather served in France and was wounded in the battle of Belleau Wood. His son, my uncle, served in the Pacific and was wounded on Okinawa. I regret not keeping up the tradition. They both loved the Corp but my uncle was deeply troubled by what he did and saw and refused to discuss any of it ever.

I have two sons in the Corps. Semper Fi!

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 MARINES.

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.

Thanks for the recognition Kev and the rest of you. I sent the video clip to my buddies at work. There's about 25 of us from the Korean War to the Middle East War and parents of Marines that get together each year. Been doing it for almost 15 years now.

Don't forget to show the colors tomorrow on Veterans Day. Remember, freedom isn't free.

I spent a year on the A/C carrier USS Midway. That's hard, dirty work, 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. Kudos go to the squids (that's our term of endearment for them).
