In a crowd you are bound to spot him
He is standing so very tall
Not too much impresses him
He has seen and done it all.
His hair is short, eyes are sharp, and not a smile is seen
He belongs to a sacred brotherhood
Always Faithful ‘til the end.
He has walked into battle, and back out again
Many think he is foolish for having no regrets
About having lived through many times others would forget
He is the first to go and last to know,
But never questions why
Only Do Or Die.
He walks a path most won’t take,
And lost a lot along the way.
But he thinks a lot of freedom,
It’s a small price to pay.
Yes he has chosen to live a life off the beaten track,
Knowing well each time he is called
He might not make it back,
So, next time you see a Devil Dog
Standing proud and true,
Be grateful for all he has given,
He has given it for you
Thank God that it is you Country he is fighting for.
Thank him too for all the hell he has seen
Thanking his for having the guts
To be a United States Marine
