Fallen Marines

In Memory of You

Were gathered today to pay tribute to you,
One of the finest, one of the few

You thought more of others, and not of yourself;
You placed all your wants up high on a shelf.

Theres always something bigger than you and me;
Its giving up everything for the land of the free.

We came to the Corps to answer the call,
And never once worried if wed stumble and fall.

 Because its not about self, the reason we fight;
Its about the Marine to our left and our right.

You gave it all for your fellow Marines,
Some whom you knew, and some never seen.

So were gathered today in memory of you,
One of the finest, and one of the few.

CWO-2 Maria P. Pettus
