The Army Goes Rolling Along 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 (TWO, THREE) For where e’er we go, you will always know That the Army Goes Rolling Along

The Marine’s Hymn From the halls of Montezuma To the shores of Tripoli, We 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 Marine.

Anchors Aweigh 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, Drink to the foam Until we meet once more Here’s wishing you a happy voyage home

Air Force Song 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! (Shout) GIVE 'ER THE GUN! Down we dive, spouting our flame from under Off with one helluva roar! We live in fame or go down in flame, (Shout) HEY! Nothing can stop the U.S. Air Force
