The Marines' Hymn

I have a stack of old sheet music of my grandmother's. I wanted to share The Marines' Hymn in honor of Memorial Day Weekend.

copyright MCMXLII - 1942

I was not familiar with the second verse

This is the back cover the score - I think it'd be very cool to have old sheet music of the Star Spangled Banner!

The Armed Forces Hymnal is also with the collection of family music. I'll have to ask my Dad if it was from when he was in the army in the late 50s early 60s since there is no date on the inside. The table of contents lists a Catholic Section, Jewish Section and Protestant Section.

Please take time to remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice to protect our freedom.
