From the Halls of Montezuma
To the shores of Tripoli
We fight our country’s battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.

Our flag’s unfurled to every breeze
From dawn to setting sun;
We have fought in every clime and place
Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off Northern lands
And in sunny tropic scenes;
You will find us always on the job —
The United States Marines.

Here’s health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we’ve fought for life
And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven’s scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.


So here it is time to Marine up again. You tear a man down so you can build him up to be a Marine so they say, well sowell, sometimesave to put the man back together. This is the time that I do that. I have given my oath as a United States Marine to my CO. I will at all costs keep that Oath. Within that oath I made others and I will do my best to keep them. I may fall and stumble stumble, but​Marine. I will get up. I will contiune. I will get to the end of my journey succesfully.

I will respect the limitations that my service has currently given me. I will remember they are temporary they are not shameful, they are just as real as any physical scar I carry from my service. They are a badge, a proof of service. I will remember this always. I give myself leeway in remembering that. It is not weak to allow leeway.

I will within respecting my limits tell those around me when I am at my limits and if they will not respect that I have reached them. I will remove myself from the situations at hand with. I do this not because of a lack of anything to those who may not hear what I say but for myself. For my recover, for this wounded warrior to mend.

I will return to the situations when my limits again allow me too. Withdrawing from a life is not an opition.

I will understand if those in my foundation of support snap at me it is not lack of love or support.

I will as I always have appreciate and respect those who chose to stand with me and me a foundation as I rebuild myself. I will do my best to express this as I am able. It is not easy to be a foundation for a wounded warrior, I will always remember this as I have done so. But I will always keep in mind that faith and support will be rewarded when I am well and able to stand firm once more.

I will make a noting of words here in writing at least once per week even if it is privately kept, but will strive to make it public as stress allows.

I make it a solid Oath and goal to be over my first and perhaps most challengeing hurdle of verbal communication on a phone device, before the first Birthday of Edward and Annabelle. I understand this is a goal and not set in solid bedrock but it is a goal to which I will strive to meet.

This is my Oath. I am Marine. I will rebuild. I will not be defeated.
