The Germans gave the Marines this name,

and pretty soon it brought them fame.

The reason for this name is said,

for all the blood the Germans shed.

Marines fought to keep this country free,

They fought for you,for him, and me.

Several more times they went to war,

Traveled to Korea and then to Nams shore.

They fought for what they believed in,

To save this Country from communist sin.

God was with them over there,

and he was with them everywhere.

Just read the title backwards and you will see,

how this Country came to be!
