Once A Marine…Always A Marine, with Semper Fidelis Chapel in the background overlooking the National Marine Corps Museum

The winding walk up to the chapel containing the words:

Endurance … Loyalty … Knowledge … Courage … Unselfishness … Bearing … Enthusiasm … Integrity … Tact … Decisiveness … Initiative … Dependability … Judgment … Justice … Leadership … Teamwork … Loyalty … Determination … Confidence … Commitment.

Etched into the windows of the Chapel are the words:

Honor … Courage … Commitment … Integrity … Faith … Courage … Vigilence … Sacrifice … Compassion … Patriotism … Service.

Behind the Semper Fidelis engraved alter, this prayer is etched:

Eternal Father, grant, we pray
To all Marines, both night and day
The courage, honor, strength and skill
Their land to serve, thy law fulfill
Be thou the shield forevermore
From every peril to the Corps
