I have served in every battle
Our Country has fought
I was there on the air, land, sea
Serving our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines
Not asking for glory
Preserving the fighting strength

I went when asked to go
In war and in times of peace
I was there to give aid to all
Whether friend or foe
Heart filled with joy helping to give birth;
To the agony of trying to save a friend

I have laughed and cried
Even wet my pants in fear
Running to the calls for help
Patching wounds and giving encouraging words
My hope for others who will follow
In future battles will come to know

You’ll always be loved by others
‘Cause you were their
Medic, Corpsman, and Doc
