THE UNITED STATES MERCHANT MARINE CREED

by our friend Jim Willis
former VA Administrator for the state of Oregon.

From our shores to every theater of war my ships
have carried the troops, guns, planes, and supplies
needed for victory.
In the face of devastating losses, my Mariners never
gave up and always stayed true to our mission:
We will deliver.
No distance was too far and no danger too great to
keep us from our duty and triumph over the
tyrants of the world.
I am the flag of the United States Merchant Marine

GOLDEN GATE CHAPTER
In peace and war, the Merchant Marine provides
sea transport vital to our economy and for
moveme
nt of war equipment and military personnel.  In
wartime, Merchant Mariners are trained to be warriors to
protect their cargo and to keep the lifeline of supplies
unbroken.  Ably fighting alongside the Navy Armed Guard to
contest submarine, surface and air attacks, they were at the
Normandy Invasion and all other invasions of WWII.  The
Merchant Marine delivered 97 percent of all war materials to
World War II fighting fronts and sustained a loss of more than
1,500 ships.  The extremely high casualty rate, 1 of every 26
men, was the highest casualty ratio suffered by any branch of
Armed Service in World War II.  This fact has often gone
unnoticed.
