Marine Hymn



..............................

From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.

Our flag's unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev'ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job--
The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

Tribute to Veterans of WW II, Korea, and Vietnam Wars

My mother shares my fierce support of our military personnel. She bought the following videos and every time we watch them, we always cry-baby. In the past we have done volunteer work for the vets at the local VA hospital and so did my younger sister. We got the art department at schools to make holiday cards for the vets to distribute, made hundreds of cookies and sewed hundreds of Christmas stockings which we stuffed with goodies and passed out. We have visited vets at the hospital and it is a damned, crying shame that so many have NO VISITORS. HOW can they be FORGOTTEN??

Fire Chief Chris Fields - Baby - Oklahoma Murrah Bldg Bombing


Oklahoma City Bombing [1995]

The image of firefighter Chris Fields holding the dying infant Baylee Almon won the Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography in 1996.Two people, Lester LaRue and Charles Porter, standing just three feet apart took almost the same image yet it was Charles Porter’s image that won the Pulitzer.

At 9:02, on April 19, 1995, Gulf War vet, Timothy McVeigh detonated 4,800 lbs of fertilizer and fuel oil. The resulting blast destroyed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal government Building and killed 168 people. The bombing, largest act of domestic terrorism, in America, shattered pre-911 America’s innocence.

As the fires raged rescue services and bystanders rushed to pull victims out of the twisted wreckage. Sifting through the rubble police officer, Sgt. John Avera found a small half buried body. Shouting. “I have a critical infant! I have a critical infant!” he thrust the, 1-year-old Baylee Almon into the arms of nearby firefighter Oklahoma City fire Capt. Chris Fields.
