Late memorial day post, i have been busy and forgot to post something on here.
The first section is lyrics from a song about the US Marine corps (Oorah!) that i think is very patriotic and fitting for memorial day, you can find it on youtube, search "The warrior song: hard corps". The second is from a song by Trace adkins, its called "Semper fi"

The eagle born to those who pledged their lives and sacred honor
was smiled upon by God and freed from chains and iron collar.
He is held aloft on unity and by history revered;
for preserving peace through strength his wings now reach across two hundred years.
But for each of those and one year more,
God has smiled upon The Corps,
from the Barbary Coast to the Eastern Sand,
by sword, by gun, or by bare hand.
So it's been, and shall be weighed:
though many are born, few are "made".
Faithful Always, they shall remain,
dogs to loose when war is waged!

I sleep in my bed instead of a foxhole...
Never heard my boss tell me to lock and load...
Ain't no bullet holes in the side of my SUV...
because the kid next door just shipped out overseas...
Semper fi...

Semper fi!
(For those of you unfamiliar with US marine corps culture, "Semper fi" is short for "Semper fidelis", which is latin for "Always faithful". its a motto in the marines and its what they live by.)
and happy very late memorial day!
