"From the Halls of Montezuma............."

As millions of Americans prepare to celebrate Memorial Day in one aspect or another, I believe one hymn deserves special recognition and celebration; the Marines' Hymn, which was written during the 19th century, and mentions two historic battles where the United States Marines did what United States Marines do.

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 Marine.

Even though I plan on enlisting in the United States Navy this fall; I believe that no branch of the Military can compete with the United States Marine Corps: The Few, The Proud, The Marines.

May God Bless all of our Soldiers this Memorial Day weekend; and may all those who perished for America and for all of our freedoms be remembered for not only their heroic last measure of devotion to their Nation, but for what they sacrificed their lives for.
