ASK ME WHAT I WAS



I'll reply with what I've done.



Those things others would not do, I did;



Those rivers others would not swim, I swam:



Those hills others would not climb, I conquered;



Those bridges others would not cross, I crossed;



I have celebrated. I have mourned.



I have smiled and I have frowned.



I have seen death and I felt its warm breath. It did not faze me,



For I was different. I was a warrior.



You ask me what I was? It was my destiny,



Until my last breath,



To be a United States Marine.



And my spirit shall live forever…



SEMPER FIDELIS



FOR I WAS, AM AND SHALL FOREVER BE A



"UNITED STATES MARINE"
