Army Song

"The Army Goes Rolling Along"

Verse:

March along, sing our song, with the Army of the free.

Count the brave, count the true, who have fought to victory.

We’re the Army and proud of our name!

We’re the Army and proudly proclaim:

First Chorus:

First to fight for the right,

And to build the Nation’s might,

And the Army goes rolling along.

Proud of all we have done,

Fighting till the battle’s won,

And the Army goes rolling along.

Refrain:

Then it’s hi! hi! hey!

The Army’s on its way.

Count off the cadence loud and strong;

For where’er we go,

You will always know

That the Army goes rolling along.

Second Chorus:

Valley Forge, Custer’s ranks,

San Juan Hill and Patton’s tanks,

And the Army went rolling along.

Minute men, from the start,

Always fighting from the heart,

And the Army keeps rolling along.

Refrain:

(same as above)

Third Chorus:

(slower, more freely)

Men in rags, men who froze,

Still that Army met its foes,

And the Army went rolling along.

Faith in God, then we’re right,

And we’ll fight with all our might,

As the Army keeps rolling along.

Refrain:

Then it’s hi! hi! hey!

The Army’s on its way.

Count off the cadence loud and strong; (two! three!)

For where’er we go,

You will always know

That the Army goes rolling along! (keep it rolling!)

And the Army goes rolling along!

I am an American Soldier.

I am a warrior and a member of a team.

I serve the people of the United States, and live the Army Values.

I will always place the mission first.

I will never accept defeat.

I will never quit.

I will never leave a fallen comrade.

I am disciplined, physically and mentally tough, trained and proficient in my warrior tasks and drills.

I always maintain my arms, my equipment and myself.

I am an expert and I am a professional.

I stand ready to deploy, engage, and destroy, the enemies of the United States of America in close combat.

I am a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.

I am an American Soldier.

The Great Migration South

It is my hope to blog the journey of the castaway Weger clan from the green forest and mountains of Washington to the arid plains of Texas. The night was spent in eager anticipation of the migration. This meant insomnia for Christi and myself. It meant near panic from Brynley.  Unfortunately the movers packed up "Light Bear" and " the rain sound" and the bedroom looked a little scary.  This was remedied with my laptop playing Cars and Jack the Giraffe on over watch.  All went well till the movie ended which, of course, led to the wailing and gnashing of teeth.  After the third time through, Brynleooky decided to return many of the blueberries she and her sister had inhaled while sneaking out to the bush.  This was done in a projectile fashion onto the best carpet in the house.  So much for the deposit. :-/.   The inspection is today while we are still moving out (cringe).  I am eagerly awaiting clearance and completion of outprocessing this morning.  I pray it goes as smoothly as possible
