The Title – Marine Corps Emblem Image

Marine Corps Emblem Image – Intarsia Woodworking

The Title

It Can Not be Inherited
Nor Can it Ever be Purchased
You or No One Alive
can Buy It for Any Price
It is Impossible to Rent
and It Can Not be Lent
You Alone and Our Own
have Earned It
with Your Sweat, Blood and Lives.
You Own It Forever
The Title
“United States Marine”

-Author Unknown

I personally do not know what it means to be a United States Marine, however, I did this Marine Corps Emblem Image piece for a very good friend of mine who I am very grateful for knowing. Years have passed since he wore the uniform, but he never takes off the title. He takes pride in the title and conducts himself with the actions represented of what a Marine is noted for. This pride carries through in all aspects of his life and being a Marine is not what he did, but is who he is. I am envious of this pride and I am forever grateful for the servitude he has provided. To all of the past, present, and future Marines… Thank You.

Our freedom is not free and you and all other service members keep us safe. We are truly grateful for your service and for upholding the traditions of military service.

This piece was made for Donnie Boivin – Corporal United States Marines Corps 1995 – 1999 Semper Fi Marine.
