I played Anchors Away because you are suppose to play it before The Marines Hymn. I always hated that Wink

The service and academy bands and choruses are the best. They always perform the music as it was intended, without unnecessary flourishes. Count on them for the best rendition of our National Anthem as well.

When you get the order to sing such songs because it’s what the army likes, you are getting tired of it one day. At least that’s how I feel about such songs. If there was a theme I like it was “Green Field of France” by The men they cound not hang.

He was just a rookie trooper and he surely shook with fright,
As he checked all his equipment and made sure his pack was tight...


Every AM at jump school for cable time this song was playing on the loud speakers.

I wouldn't give a bean to be a fancy pants Marine;
I'd rather be a Dogface soldier like I am.
I wouldn't trade my old ODs for all the Navys dungarees,
For I'm the walking pride of Uncle Sam.
On Army posters that I read
It says "Be All That You Can",
So they're tearing me down
To build me over again!
I'm just a Dogface soldier
With a rifle on his shoulder,
And I eat raw meat for breakfast every day.
So feed me ammunition,
Keep me in the 3rd Division
Your Dogface soldier boy's okay!

I was wondering why this thread was started, then I remembered every Fourth of July show i’ve Seen had the vets and active stand as the songs were played. It’s a good touch and a bene for having served.



"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.

The Navy Band came to our high school once. So good. We wouldn't let them leave until they played Anchors Aweigh.

Here's another, Minstrel Boy...

Ben McCulloch was a real person. Interesting character. Knew Davy Crockett and planned to go with him to Texas, but contracted measles while in Louisiana. Crockett went ahead to San Antonio and met his fate at the Alamo. McCulloch, however, played a significant role in the Battle of San Jacinto, and the defeat of Santa Anna’s army.

Wilson’s Creek was an actual Civil War battle that McCulloch’s forces won, in spite of being poorly armed. The song also correctly states that McCollough “lost his life” in Arkansas in 1862.
As others have written, not many song writers can put themselves into character, 150 years ago, and pull it off.

Of course, Joshua Chamberlain and the 20th Maine heroically defended Little Round Top at Gettysburg.

Thanks for the correction.
I'm not going to ask about the sheep.

Lord, Guard and Guide the Men Who Fly (USAF Hymn)

By Mary C.D. Hamilton

Lord, guide and guide the men who fly
Through the great spaces of the sky;
Be with them traversing the air
In darkening storms or sunshine fair.

Thou who dost keep with tender might
The balanced birds in all their flight,
Thou of the tempered winds, be near,
That, having Thee, they know no fear.

Control their minds with instinct fit
What time, adventuring, they quit
The firm security of land;
Grant steadfast eye and skillful hand.

Aloft in solitudes of space,
Uphold them with Thy saving grace.
O God, protect the men who fly
Through lonely ways beneath the sky.

Amen

(Tune name HESPERUS, but can also be sung to MELITA, the one used for the Navy Hymn--I weep during all the service Hymns)

Eternal Father, Strong to Save (Navy Hymn)

By William Whiting

Eternal Father, strong to save,
Whose arm hath bound the restless wave,
Who bidd'st the mighty ocean deep,
Its own appointed limits keep.
Oh hear us when we cry to Thee,
For those in peril on the sea!

Oh Trinity of love and pow'r,
Our brethren shield in danger's hour,
From rock and tempest, fire and foe,
Protect them where so e'er they go.
Thus evermore shall rise to Thee
Glad hymns of praise from land and sea! Amen.
