You wanna talk about influences? “The Marines’ Hymn” has been inspiring young Corpsmen for well over a century. The song is sung as a reminder of the great deeds that the Marine Corps has performed in the past and the tenets they strive to uphold.

Oh yeah, and the song takes its music from a French opera (see above).
