This poem originates in thought from a line mentioned at a Marine from World War II’s funeral. It is solely a befitting comment made from One Marine to another and states highly of their character and confidence in the midst of an entry point into a tremendously huge battle: the beach head.

This comment came from one high-ranking Marine in reference to the World War II Vet that had passed on. This high-ranking Officer brilliantly said a catch phrase that only a Marine can say with the greatest of Optimism and Fortitude to another Marine heading in the same direction as he is going:


”See you on the Beach”


And now here is the Poem:



A "Beach-Fighter" rushes in...Where Angels have been known to step light-ly...

A Marine ...who is ready to put it all on the line...to take on..."Whatever Might Be".

A Warrior on the Battlefield...Who charges right into the "Danger Zone"...

Able to tackle what lies up ahead...not afraid to go it alone.

The "Beach-Fighter" hits the beach...and says I'll see ya' there...

Courage and Optimism ride with him...Skill, Power, and Strength...All come to bear.

He will enter the fray with a thunderous clang...as he collides with what might try to oppose...

He will bring down pillars around him...He will take down giants with a blow above the nose.

Strike at the heart of the unconquerable dragon...pierce it all the way through...

For one moment in time...You set the terms for how your enemy must face you.

Should a Man or Beast...decide to stop him...

He will pick 'em up...and bop 'em !

Tales of glory...

A noble story.

Your Bravery...Unwavering...

Nothing can stop you...Nothing !

A Warrior in time...Like none other...

Known as a Warrior among the Mightiest of Warriors...amongst each Warrior Brother.

This is the sign of a "Beach-Fighter"...the few that have witnessed his deeds will confess...

There is nothing mortal that can stop him...gather around and hear each witness profess.

The "Beach-Fighter" left his mark...

Undoubtedly...Set off a spark.

And for little reward or even the mention of his name...

He charged on valiantly...right into the bursting flame.

Oh...hear me...reader of these words...I try to define...

The "Beach-Fighter" scaled castle forts since the earliest of time.

For Centuries have passed and gone now...One by One...

Of the day...the "Beach-Fighter" stood and done...what he has done.

Was there someone by his side ?

Did he avenge for love or pride ?

The "Beach-Fighter"...A single man of purpose...and of deed...

How quickly you rose in service...Knowing you could die...and that you would bleed.

Great and Mighty "Beach-Fighter" who fought for what you thought was best...

Long ago...You made your mark...Your sword lies at your side...Rest, "Beach-Fighter"...Rest.

WRITTEN IN RESPECT AND IN HONOR OF THOSE WHO RUSH INTO DANGER FOR A CAUSE...


IN PLACES WHERE ANGELS FEAR TO TREAD.
