It all began on June 25th, 1950 was the year.
The War took place in Korea. As Marines we went with pride.
We risked our lives for freedom, and Old Glory our hearts could see.
Many went so young in life, but with very prideful hearts.
The circumstances were hard to face, and the climate made things worse.
We lost many friends along the way and with grateful hearts we said good-bye.
We were just proud to be Americans, defending the red, blue and the white.
Although this war is forgotten by many, but for us, instilled in memory.
Korea is there. It is a war that we will always fight.
For we know,
