by Vincent W. Paul

While we celebrate the holidays, here in the states, some Marines, in Dress Blues, stand at heavens gates…
While folks take for granted, being free…
they forget that they died for you and for me….
not because they wanted to, but they knew that they had a job to do…
With bravery, courage and and a whole lot more, they unselfishly remain true to the Corp…
All have relatives, children and wives, yet they go in harms way, and they lay down their lives…
For what? You ask…
What is this creed? Well to be a Marine, takes a special breed…
A person unselfish, a person with wit, a person who doesn’t, know the word quit…
A person whose pride is as big as the sky…
Who does what they’ve trained for and is not scared to die…
I speak from experience…
I know what I’ve seen…
Because now and forever I AM A MARINE!

SSGT Vincent W. Paul
1965 to 1968
