Marion Stults….WW2Marine..Heaven holds a special placeFor those who do the deed,Defenders of the innocentIn their hour of need.
May we someday be grateful. There’s a debt they cannot pay,To the Marines who lay it on the lineEach and every day.
I am proud to be a Marine.I’ve done my very best.I’ll stand my watch until my MakerCalls me home to rest.
But when I meet Saint Peter,There’s just one request I’ll make:“Please let me spend EternityStanding guard at Heaven’s Gate.”
