Coast Guard- Semper Paratus (Always Ready)
Words and Music
by Captain Francis Saltus Van Boskerck, USCG
We're always ready for the call,
We place our trust in Thee.
Through surf and storm and howling gale,
High shall our purpose be.
"Semper Paratus" is our guide,
Our fame, our glory, too.
To fight to save or fight and die,
Aye! Coast Guard we are for you!
Air Force- The Air Force Song
By Robert Crawford
|Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun;
Here they come zooming to meet our thunder,
At ‘em boys, Give ‘er the gun! (Give ‘er the gun!)
Down we dive, spouting our flame from under,
Off with one heckuva roar!
We live in fame or go down in flame-Hey!
Nothing’ll stop the U.S Air Force!
Navy- Anchor’s Aweigh
By Miles and Zimmermann
|Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh.
Farewell to college joys, we sail at break of day-ay-ay-ay.
Through our last night on shore, sing to the foam,
Until we meet again here’s wishing you a happy voyage home.

Lyricist unknown, Music by Offenbach
|From the Halls of Montezuma,
To the Shores of Tripoli;
We-e fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title
Of UNITED STATES MARINES.
Army- The Caisson Song
By Edmund Grubner
| 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.
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.
