The Marine Corps Wife

THE MARINE CORPS WIFE
Billy & Maggie Bagget

We enjoy your newsletters so much and I would like to pass along a poem that my husband gave me when we were stationed at Camp Lejeune in the ’50’s. He gave this to me just after an IG inspection.

The Marine CorpS Wife

No stripes on her arm, but she’s no boot
A squared away gal who’s really quite cute
She takes her order’s as a real “salt” should
And takes care of her job as a good Marine would.
She want be promoted, though she deserves to be
She’s happy with the life the Marine Corps gave me
For the years to come and throughout her life
She’ll proudly bear the title of “Marine Corps Wife.”
