The Battle of Iwo Jima
Plus 72 Years

“The battle of Iwo (Jima) Island has been won. The United States Marines, by their individual and collective courage, have conquered a base which is as necessary to us in our continuing forward movement toward final victory as it
was vital to the enemy in staving off ultimate
defeat.... Among the Americans who served
on Iwo Island, uncommon valor
was a common virtue.”

- Fleet Admiral Chester W. Nimitz,
17 March 1945

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/18/17:

An old farmer was inconsolable after his dog went missing. He took out an ad in the newspaper, but two weeks later, there was still no sign of the mutt.

“What did you write in the ad?” his wife asked.

"Here, boy,” he replied.

The United States Marine Corps Hymn

Words: L. Z. Phillips (?) (1919)
Music: Jacques Offenbach from Genevieve de Brabant (1868)
 

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. 

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry 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.
