The young Marine was weary <br />
and he sought a little rest <br />
With his helmet for a pillow <br />
And his rifle on his chest. <br />

I know who wrote that,
it was Sergeant Stokes, 1st Marine Division during World War Two, Island of Saipan.

Its nice to revisit that great poem. Just last night I was trying to tell a ciivilian about what it is to be a Marine.
