- Color copy ribbons, medals, stripes, etc. Use them for borders or in place of stickers and die-cuts. Try placing them on paper that is the same color as the uniform and matting some of the pictures with the same color paper.

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 ev'ry 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.
The United States Marine
You can keep your Army khaki,
You can keep your Navy blue.
I have the world's best fighting man,
Uncle Sam ever knew.
His uniform is different,
The best you've ever seen.
The German's call him "Devil dog",
His real name is "Marine".
He was born in boot camp,>
The place where God forgot.
D.I.'s breathing down his neck,
The sun so blazing hot.
He gets up every morning,
Before the rising sun.
He'll run his required miles and more,
Before the day is done.
He's deadly with a rifle,
A bayonet made of steel.
He takes the challenge given,
He's mastered how to kill.
"I've fought so many battles,
And won them as you've seen.
There is no better fighting man,
The United States Marine!"
And when he gets to Heaven,
St. Peter he will tell,
"One more Marine reporting sir,
I've served my time in Hell."
