A Parent’s Pride

It’s not every day parents can say their son has joined the Corps
The pride that’s found inside their hearts swells within them more and more
Your choice to serve and to protect along side the proud and few
Depicts the character and zeal in all you say and do

A few good men can proudly say they are part of such a group
Of leathernecks, those devil dogs, and jarheads to name a few
It’s not terms like these that make up the man that you and I do see
It’s the proud, the few and the brave who are United States Marines!
