A Marine’s Mother submitted by Clarence Briggs

“A Marine’s Mother”
Submitted by Clarence Briggs

I will never be first lady,
Nor grace a movie screen
I?ll never be world-famous
Nor will I be a queen.
But I would never change my lot
With any that I?ve seen.
For you see ? I am the Mother
Of a UNITED STATES MARINE.

This is a thing my mother found in a newspaper back in 1943. She kept it with her till she died in 1978. I’m her son the Marine.

Semper fi,
Clarence
