Another Marine

December 14, 2018

Whenever I become aware that another Marine has answered his last muster, I am reminded by words in our Marines’ Hymn that tells us, “… the streets of Heaven are guarded by United States Marines.” Stack arms and rest your pack, Marine, and take your post. You still have important work to do. Semper Fi
