From Fred Field (June '45) of CA - 11/09/10 - "RE: The Mice Years":
Hello Carol, Tue. 11-9
Just cleaning out some old correspondence today when I came across the below. Ralph Wicke (1950) and I had been corresponding about the Mice Years.
It seemed to me that it resulted in a newsletter entry. Couldn't find it today. Also thought it might be in Site Map, but couldn't find it there either. Would seem it ought to be there since the question of when the twice-a-year graduation ended comes up frequently.
How's your memory?
Fred W. Field
Thanks so much, Fred!
I thought you knew. You're the Man with the Memory. I personally have no memory - only mush for brains - and that's on a good day - which this is not!
Let's just make that new page now:

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.
