8: Semper Fidelis - Yesterday, Today, & Tomorrow From battlefields of the past To those currently in the news Marines have fought to defend our land And to protect our Liberties Uncommon Valor is that common thread That runs throughout The Corps Binding each generation of new Marines With those who have gone before Where do they come from And why do they fight always willing to pay the price For freedom isn't free my friend It often requires the ultimate sacrifice From the Halls of Montezuma To the Shores of Tripoli And on to the beaches of World War II Marines have fought for me They overcame the frozen hell Of the Chosin Reservoir Marines battled and bled in the jungles Of a distant land called Vietnam In Lebanon they came in peace But terrorists would not reason And the bombing of the Beirut barracks Placed more Marines on Guard Duty in Heaven Today's Marines continue the fight And pay the price for Freedom Many have bled and many have died In the current War on Terror Though some have questioned the job they do And may even view them with hate These brave Marines continue to serve And courageously fight our battles They are warriors who aren't appreciated Yet they realize their mission is vital These Marines are now and always will be Deserving of America's honor by David Bounds
