He stands.
Different than he used to be.
His mind--no longer functions as a single unit.
His body--no longer separate from his mind.
A man-machine trained extensively/exclusively.

He waits.
More ready than he used to be.
His heart beats as he wills it to.
His orders determine the rhythm of his breathing.
A Marine ready to do what only he can do.

He goes.
To a place I would never.
His feet march in harmony with his brothers.
His motivation: to do the job.
A force that cannot define "defeat".

He moves.
With fierceness--quiet/sleek.
His eyes see for him and his partners.
His hands are quick and precise.
A weapon total and confident.

He returns.
Much different than he used to be.
His mind holds images that haunt.
His body has been forever changed.
A man-machine trained extensively/exclusively.

He waits.
More eagerly than he used to be.
His heart beats much faster than it used to.
His orders~(he wonders about)~but he can't!
A Marine fighting his own personal battle.

He goes.
To a place of restoration.
His feet lead him to the only Place.
His motivation: Perfect Peace.
A force that has no strength.

He finds.
A Savior Mighty (yet humble).
Who has fought a greater battle than he.
Who is the Warrior of warriors.
The true Undefeated--for the Marine.

He stands.
So different than he used to be.
His mind in God's Perfect Peace.
His body the temple of the Holy Ghost.
His God: the Hero for the Marine.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

As a former Marine, I must say you caught the essence of what is the back of each of our mind's. It may sound like bravado to those on the outside, but we pride ourselves on never turning away or giving up, no matter what. When I served as an infantryman, the men around me were very vulgar and earthy at times, but nobody shyed away from prayer and most of my brothers were believers. I miss those days, days of being around people who didn't backstab, called things as they were and were proud of their God, Country, Corps and themselves. I wish we had more men like the Marines I served with in the church today, let alone in society. Thank you and Semper Fi!
