We live in glory, outward bound!
Bound for the stars’ immensity.
We soar above the Earth so round
On jets of flaming tensity.
Or deepest stellar ocean,
We’ll stride the skyways on the blast
Of nuclear implosion.
Our ranging cruisers ride the wind
Of space’s dark umbration.
We loft them high, there to defend
Our homes and Freedom’s Nation.
On guard we stand
Above our land
To guide our missile’s motion,
And pledge our honor to the last
Full measure of devotion.
— Major Grady L. McMurtry
