    One of my Seabee favorites....



    We work like hell, we fight like hell,
    And always come back for more:
    The Navy's advance base engineers
    On many a foreign shore.
    On half the lousy islands
    From here to Timbucto,
    You'll find a hive of Seabees-
    One hell of a fighting crew.

    The admiral just dropped around
    To chat the other night,
    He said, "Now boys, I know you work
    But you've also been trained to fight.

    "So if there's any trouble, don't stop
    To put on your jeans;
    Just drop your tools, grab up your guns
    And protect those poor marines."

    Every time I hear the National Anthem I tear up. I love to hear that song. I also enjoy hearing the Air Force Song. Both bring back many memories that cross the spectrum of emotions.

    A couple of sayings that I like are:



    Lead, follow, or get out of the way!

    Adapt or die!

    Prepare for the worst and hope for the best!



    All of them have helped me get through some trying times.

    Here's one of mine.

    Preceded by the Last Post.

    "The Ode to the Fallen"

    "They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old,
    Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn,
    At the going down of the sun and in the morning
    We will remember them".

    "Lest we forget".

    Followed by Reveille.
