Topic: Pick up your packs...


Alright, I'm not sure how accurate this is, since I heard it a few months ago on a JROTC field trip. It's a JROTC version of "Pick up your weapons and follow me."


Hey, Army
Ground Pounding Army
Pick up your packs and follow me
We are the c'dets of J Rot-see

Hey, Air Force
High Flying Air Force
Get in your jets and follow me
We are the c'dets of J Rot-see

Hey, Navy
World's Greatest Navy
Get in your ships and follow me
We are the c'dets of J Rot-see

Hey, Marine Corps
Rough and Tumble M'rine Corps
Pick up your weapons and follow me
We are the c'dets of J Rot-see


I'm sure there's more, but I had enough trouble remembering the Marine Corps one. I thing there's one for Coast Guard too

here's the rest

Hey Coast Guard (or Coastiess)
Puddle Pirate Coast Guard
Pick up your blues and follow me
Were the c'dets of J Rot-see

Hey Civilians
Coach potato civilians
Get off your butts and follow me
Were the c'dets of J Rot-see

Hey Boy Scouts
Merit Badge Boy Scouts
Pick up your canoes and follow me
Were the c'dets of J Rot-see

Hey Youth Corps
Bus Riding Youth Corps
Get in your buses and follow me
Were the c'dets of J Rot-see

that's right... thanks

I thought of another. It's called "Who we are" and it's an Air Force jody, someone correct me if I mess part of it up.

Everywhere we go
people wanna know
who we are
so we tell them

We aren't the Army
The mud draggin' Army

We aren't the Navy
The deck swabbin' Navy

We aren't the M'rine Corps
The bullet magnet M'rine Corps

We aren't the Coast Guard
The lazy, lazy Coast Guard

We are the Air Force
The world's greatest Air Force

Hoo-Ah!

Yeah, a 400 mile drive with only the one CD tends to get it stuck in your head.

Terribly sorry.

there is one for every infantry unit out there but these are the ones i know. the order used for the units doesnt matter it is more common to hear the 82 and 101 as the lead two and the 75th and 25th as the last ones.
