Viewing conflicts through the eye of Counterinsurgency COIN – Since 2007
Tribute to USMC
From the Halls of Montezuma
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
of United States Marine.
Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in ev’ry clime and place
Where we could take a gun;
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job–
The United States Marines.
Here’s health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve
In many a strife we’ve fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

Tribute to US Navy
Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
Farewell to college joys, we sail at break of
Through our last night on shore, drink to the foam,
Until we meet once more:
Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.
Stand, Navy, out to sea, Fight our battle cry;
We’ll never change our course, So vicious foe
Roll out the TNT, Anchors Aweigh.
Sail on to victory
And sink their bones to Davy Jones, hooray!
Stand Navy, down the field,
Sail set to the sky
We’ll never change our course
So Army you steer shy-y-y-y
Roll up the score Navy
Sail, Navy, down the field,
And sink the Army, sink the Army gray.
