Marine Links


This link will take you to my Marine Links Page. I've made some major changes to this page, so if you haven't visited it in a while, take a look. I've put together links to some of the most interesting Marine related pages I've found. I'll be adding pages here as I find more, so stop by now and then to check for new ones. Be sure to sign my "Duty Log" on this page before leaving, so I'll know you've been here!


Go to my Marine Links Page.






The Marine's Hymn

Click above to listen to or download the Marine Corps Hymn.
This is a large wave file and takes a while to load, but it's a quality stereo version and well worth the wait.

The Marine's Hymn

Click above for a smaller faster loading version of the Hymn.
This is a Real Audio file. If you haven't downloaded the Real Audio player yet, you will be able to after clicking the link. It's a great tool, easy to use and install. Many sites now have sound files that require Real Audio, I highly recommend it.





Congressional Links


I hope that you'll use these links to exercise your rights as an American. We all complain about how the country is run, how high our taxes are, or a policy that the Congress is about to vote on...But we seldom do anything about it. Here's an easy way for you to make your opinion known. These links will give you the E-Mail addresses, U.S. Mail addresses and phone numbers for your U.S. Senators and your Representative to the U.S.Congress. Let them know how you feel......

You just might make a difference!


Write your U.S. Senators
U.S. Senate Members listing by Name, State, or Class
Write your Representative to the U.S. Congress




National Ensign Link


Use this link to learn more about the history and development of the National Ensign, our American Flag! Excellent brief descriptions of various versions of the flag along with full color images of each. You may be very surprised at some of the flags which have been flown by the armed forces of the United States in our early years. Pay particular attention to the flags flown by George Washington and John Paul Jones...
