I'm a Marine on the beach, I’m a killin’ machine, with a need to bleed you when the light goes green.
Best believe, I’m in a zone to be, from my Yin to my Yang to my Yang Tze.
Put a grin on my chin when you come to me, ‘cuz I’ll win, I’m one-of-a-kind and I’ll bring death
To the place you’re about to be: another river of blood runnin’ under my feet.

Forged in a fire lit long ago, stand next to me, you’ll never stand alone,
I’m last to leave, but the first to go, Hard Corps is the only way I know.
I feed on the fear of the devil inside of the enemy faces in my sight.
Aim with the hand, shoot with the mind, kill with a heart like arctic ice.

I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song.

I bask in the glow of the rising war, lay waste to the ground of an enemy shore,
Wade through the blood spilled on the floor, and if another one stands I’ll kill some more.
Bullet in the breach and a fire in me like a cigarette thrown to gasoline,
if death don’t bring you fear then death ain’t brought by no Marine.

Come to the nightmare, come to me, deep down in the dark where the devil be,
In the maw with the jaws and the razor teeth, where the brimstone burns and the angel weeps.
Call to the gods if I cross your path and my silhouette hangs like a body bag.
Hope is a moment now long past, the shadow of death is the one I cast.

I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song
Hell has no demon I won’t overcome, I am a warrior and this is my song.

Now, I live lean and I mean to inflict the grief, and the least of me is still out of your reach.
The killing machine’s gonna do the deed, until the river runs dry and my last breath leaves.
Chin in the air with a head held high, I’ll stand in the path of the enemy line.
Feel no fear, know my pride: for God and Country I’ll end your life.

I am a Devil-Dog I’m marching on, I am a warrior and this is my song
Hell has no demon I won’t overcome, I am a warrior and this is my song
I made the devil himself turn and run, I am a warrior and this is my song
Into the fire I will keep marchin’ on, OORAH, Marine Corps, get some!

I never get tired of that video.

However, the US armed forces right now are hardly able to punch their way out of a wet paper bag.

They'll still answer when called. I imagine readiness is south of the early eighties. Better weapons and radios. Just tired, and too many staff and field grade that have been over promoted.

Most Marines of my acquaintance and Era stay out of trouble.

But they aren't inclined to turn any cheeks, either.

There's a storm coming.

Chic with a minigun. I'd like to introduce her to my son.

I am crowding 70 years old and I'm still a warrior. There are many of us. Still loyal to God, family, and country. Still packing heat. Still willing and able to use it. Still able to confront evil, subdue evil, and lie down afterwards and sleep the peaceful, dreamless sleep.
Great song and video!
Semper Vigilis.
