Our Brother The Marine

Our brother the Marine is one of the toughest we've seen

He is off to travel far & wide & we pray that God stays by his side

The things he'll see & the things he'll do is all to protect me & you

He's serving our country in a time of trouble & doubt ~ We gave him some gadgets to make sure he is not without

A second generation Marine- we know he has a tough act to follow ~ So the words courage & honor will never be hollow

Our debt of gratitude for his service to our nation is one that will never be taken 

lightly or without thought or prayer for we know he is the one who is there

on the front lines so we can stay safe & sound for a family who loves him more could never be found

So here's to our brother the Marine ~ Who is one of the toughest we've seen

May God bless him & keep him safe from harm until we once again can hold him in our arms!
