It can be said, that the way we remember our war dead is a mark of our Nation’s character, a symbol of our pride and spirit. We must never forget our men and women who have gave everything in the defense of our freedom, those who continue to serve and the families that remain. To all of our Gold Star Mothers and families, we thank you all for your sacrifice and your Marines will never be forgotten.

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 The United States Marines.
Final verse of the Marine Hymn
