THE FEW, THE PROUD...

SARGE LINTECUM
 Copyright 1999
The Third Battalion of the Fifth Marines 
Fought bravely in Vietnam.
They held their banner high
 Through ambush, bullet, and bomb.
 
The First Marine Division
Was proud to have them onboard
To uphold a great tradition,
When our Nation turned to the sword.
 
From '66 to '71 They held that banner high.
And before they'd let it touch the ground
Many of them would die.
 
A Nation should be grateful,
Whether war is right or wrong,
For the brave young men who offer their lives
To sing America's song.
