The Chesty Puller Chapter (OH-2) of the Women Marines Association
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.
