From the halls of .....
This page sort of speaks for itself, doesn't it?
We'll have to bug Kevin to get the rest of the story.
Meanwhile, let's all sing along with the tune of .....
The Marines 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 every 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.
Here, Kevin is in a uniform he wore before he joined the Marines.
To my regret, I let him be enrolled in San Marcos Military Academy in 1968 - I say to my regret because I came to realize that he hated the joint, although he's not letting on in this picture.
At least he got to play some football while he was there.
