Why I want to be a Marine

Everywhere I go people ask me,
why when I grow I want to be a Marine.
I turn my head sharply and look them in the eye,
have you heard of the Marines who fought and died.
Somewhere in the jungle covered in blood,
a U.S.Marine is dyin’ in the mud.
He fought to keep this country free,
but like everything else freedom isn’t free.

  10. Lo righty left right lo right! Semper Fidelis! In mos school now… lovin every minute! 3521!

  11. I’m 13. Ever since I was 10 I have wanted to join. people think it’s pointless but in my heart it is the great achievement. I want to fight for my country and help my brothers who would help me in combat. Anyone who wants to follow this great dream. Good luck, I’m on my way. Summer fi.

    • Logan, im engaged to a marine right now, and it’s a good thing you have a couple more years of school to go so you can learn more about the marines becasue its not Summer Fi, its Semper Fi.. Semper Fidelis is Latin for “Always Faithful” or “Always Loyal”. it is also well known in the United States as the motto of the United States Marine Corps (and often shortened to Semper Fi in Marine contexts), Semper Fidelis has served as a slogan for many families and entities, in many countries, they have been dated to have been started no later than the 16th century.
      There is nothing in the Marine Corps called Summer Fi. Its Semper Fi. im not trying to embarace you, im trying to keep you from it when you join the Marines and officially sign your papers. I Don’t think you want to walk around and Say Summer Fi instead of Semper Fi. i know personally that it would offend my fiance and everything hes fighting for. maybe many others as well.
