1 United States Navy Mission: to maintain, train and equip combat-ready Naval forces capable of winning wars, deterring aggression and maintaining freedom of the seas. Birthday: October 13, 1775 The flag of the United States Navy consists of the Seal of the Department of the Navy in the center, above a yellow scroll inscribed "United States Navy" in dark blue letters, against a dark blue background. The flag was officially adopted by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on April 24, It is used on land in offices, in parades and for ceremonial occasions, and often on a staff at the quarterdeck of ships in port. It is never flown by ships at sea, nor on outdoor flagpoles on naval land installations, and is not used as an identifying mark of U.S. Navy ships and facilities, as is the U.S. Coast Guard ensign.

4 Marine Corps 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. Our flag's unfurled to every breeze From dawn to setting sun. We have fought in ev'ry clime and place Where we could take a gun; In the snow of far-off Northern lands And in sunny tropic scenes; You will find us always on the job— The United States Marines. Here's health to you and to our Corps Which we are proud to serve. In many a strife we've fought for life And never lost our nerve; If the Army and the Navy Ever look on Heaven's scenes; They will find the streets are guarded By United States Marines.

The Indoor/Parade version is bordered by a gold fringe while the Outdoor version is plain.

8 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 (give 'er the gun now!) Down we dive spouting our flame from under Off with one helluva roar! We live in fame or go down in flame, hey! Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force! (Additional verses:) Minds of men fashioned a crate of thunder, Sent it high into the blue; Hands of men blasted the world asunder; How they lived god only knew! Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer Gave us wings, ever to soar! With scouts before and bombers galore, hey! Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force! Here's a toast to the host Of those who love the vastness of the sky, To a friend we will send a message of his brothermen who fly We drink to those who gave their all of old, Then down we roar to score the rainbow's pot of gold A toast to the host of men we boast, the U.S. Air Force! (to top) Off we go into the wild sky yonder, Keep the wings level and true. If you'd live to be a grey-haired wonder Keep the nose out of the blue! Flying men guarding the nation's border, We'll be there, followed by more! In echelon we carry on, hey! Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!

10 Coast Guard Song From North and South and East and West, The Coast Guard's in the fight. Destroying subs and landing troops, The Axis feels our might. For we're the first invaders, On every fighting field. Afloat, ashore, on men and Spars, You'll find the Coast Guard shield. We're always ready for the call, We place our trust in Thee. Through howling gale and shot and shell, To win our victory. "Semper Paratus" is our guide, Our pledge, our motto, too. We're "Always Ready," do or die! Aye! Coast Guard, we fight for you From Aztec shore to Arctic zone, To Europe and Far East. The Flag is carried by our ships, In times of war and peace. And never have we struck it yet, In spite of foe-men's might, Who cheered our crews and cheered again, For showing how to fight. We're always ready for the call, We place our trust in Thee. Through howling gale and shot and shell, To win our victory. "Semper Paratus" is our guide, Our pledge, our motto, too. We're "Always Ready," do or die! Aye! Coast Guard, we fight for you.

11 SURVEYOR and NARCISSUS, The EAGLE and DISPATCH, The HUDSON and the TAMPA The names are hard to match; From Barrow's shores to Paraguay, Great Lakes or ocean's wave, The Coast Guard fought through storms and winds To punish or to save. We're always ready for the call, We place our trust in Thee. Through howling gale and shot and shell, To win our victory. "Semper Paratus" is our guide, Our pledge, our motto, too. We're "Always Ready," do or die! Aye! Coast Guard, we fight for you.

12 Aye, we've been "Always Ready" To do, to fight, or die Write glory to the shield we wear In letters to the sky. To sink the foe or save the maimed Our mission and our pride We'll carry on 'til Kingdom Come Ideals for which we've died. We're always ready for the call, We place our trust in Thee. Through howling gale and shot and shell, To win our victory. "Semper Paratus" is our guide, Our pledge, our motto, too. We're "Always Ready," do or die! Aye! Coast Guard, we fight for you.
