A band of sisters we are called—and rightly so, for ours is a kinship of the spirit and the ties of the spirit which bind us are as enduring as the ties of blood or birth. This spirit—this Esprit De Corps—is the common heritage of all who, like us, have been Marines. It is epitomized in our proud motto: Once a Marine, Always a Marine. It recognizes no barriers of time or place—or rank or station. It lives in the loving memory of those who, having served beside us, have finished their course and answered their final muster.
Throughout our lives we hold them in our hearts and prayers. We perpetuate their memory in scholarships which open doors of opportunity to others. Moreover, each time we gather in convention, we pause to honor them in a service of remembrance and love.
This, then, is that pause of loving remembrance which strengthens and renews the ties that bind us, one to another, as friends and as Marines. Laverne, a sister member of the Woman Marines Association has been called to “guard the streets of heaven”. We are her sister Marines. We are here to honor her memory.
