In Memory (2014 +)

This page is dedicated to the women of character who, during their youth, answered the nation's call to serve in the Marine Corps, but who have since gone on to join their fellow Marines on guard at the gates of heaven.  We thank them for their contributions to our country and Corps!  May they never be forgotten.

Day is done        Fading light         Thanks and praise

Gone the sun       Dims the sight       For our days

From the lakes     And a star           'Neath the sun

From the hills     Gems the sky,        'Neath the stars

From the sky       Gleaning bright      'Neath the sky

All is well,       From afar,           As we go

Safely rest.       Drawing nigh         This we know

God is nigh.       Falls the night.     God is nigh.
