My Father gave me this prayer on one of my trips home.  He had made a habit of including a story, poem, or prayer with the letters he sent me since boot camp.  Every one of them tells a story that most people wouldn’t understand, and some that can’t be told by word of mouth.  But this one i believe to be the most simple and most powerful one.
I had been planning on getting a new tattoo at this time but this prayer completely changed my idea about what it would be.  These words embody everything i believe in and was taught by my father.  My Father spent 20 years of his life securing mine and my family’s freedom.  And i felt it was my time to return the favor.

    absolutely wonderful tat. My dad served in the Corps for 22 great years and my son followed in his footsteps too….and now has his own tatoo inspired by his love of the corps and my dad.

    OOH-RAH “FRONT TOWARDS ENEMY”  If I must die a violent death, let it be with my rifle in my hand, facing the enemy, defending those I love.
