Thank you Marine for your service to this great Nation and to our Corps
Standing here in front of the Wall
silently reading your name
solemnly I thank you one and all
Each of you different, yet the same
The list seems forever endless
but I remember your faces
you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess
as I walk slowly with measured paces
Each one of you answered the call
willingly or not, you gave your lives
Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all
The Nation still survives
"War drew us from our homeland
In the sunlit springtime of our youth.
Those who did not come back alive remain
in perpetual springtime -- forever young --
And a part of them is with us always."

God Bless You
Thank You,Rest In Peace,Brother
Your sacrifice will not be forgotten,Semper Fi.
