    This is a poem being sent from a Marine to his Dad. For those who take the time to read it, you'll see a letter from him to his Dad. It makes you truly thankful for not only the Marines, but ALL of our troops.

    THE MARINE

    We all came together,
    Both young and old
    To fight for our freedom,
    To stand and be bold.

    In the midst of all evil,
    We stand our ground,
    And we protect our country
    From all terror around.

    Peace and not war,
    Is what some people say.
    But I'll give my life,
    So you can live the American way.

    I give you the right
    To talk of your peace.
    To stand in your groups,
    and protest in our streets.

    But still I fight on,
    I don't bitch, I don't whine.
    I'm just one of the people
    Who is doing your time.

    I'm harder than nails,
    Stronger than any machine.
    I'm the immortal soldier,
    I'm a U.S. MARINE!

    So stand in my shoes,
    And leave from your home.
    Fight for the people who hate you,
    With the protests they've shown.

    Fight for the stranger,
    Fight for the young.
    So they all may have,
    The greatest freedom you've won.

    Fight for the sick,
    Fight for the poor
    Fight for the cripple,
    Who lives next door.

    But when your time comes,
    Do what I've done.
    For if you stand up for freedom,
    You'll stand when the fight's done ..
