THE MARINE: When everything is peaceful And all is quite serene, Did you ever give a thought To the United States Marine? You'll find him in the tropics Beneath the blazing sun. He's always ready for a fingt; You cannot make him run. You'll find him in the Orient Two thousand miles from home. His two years foreign duty will keep him on the roam. You'll find him in the islands Alone and sad and blue; Away from home and mother - He does it all for you. He sails the mighty oceans, He crosses every sea, To make the world a better place - Safe for "Democracy ." So when you meet a Leatherneck Give him a friendly nod, 'Cause he's the one thats for the flag, United States, and God. Wendell sent this poem to his Mother, originally published in The Leatherneck Magazine, June, 1941
