Our Memorial Day post from 2011 was one of John's favorites of all time, so he convinced me to use the same format this year, only with all new cakes. I hope you enjoy.
Today's Sweets are dedicated to the brave men and women who've given their all for our country. We are forever in their debt.
First to fight for the right,
And to build the Nation’s might,
And the Army goes rolling along.
Some super heroes wear capes around their necks.
Others wear dog tags.

From North and South and East and West
The Coast Guard's in the fight.
Destroying subs and landing troops,
The Axis feels our might.
Off we go into the wild blue yonder,
Climbing high into the sun!
By the Disney chefs at Shades of Green
Souls of men dreaming of skies to conquer
Gave us wings, ever to soar!

We live in fame or go down in flame. (Hey!)
Nothing'll stop the U.S. Air Force!
Anchors Aweigh, my boys, Anchors Aweigh!
Farewell to foreign shores,
We sail at break of day, of day.
Through our last night on shore,
Drink to the foam,
Until we meet once more.
Here's wishing you a happy voyage home!

From the Halls of Montezuma,
To the shores of Tripoli;
We fight our country's battles
In the air, on land, and sea;
First to fight for right and freedom
And to keep our honor clean:
We are proud to claim the title
Of United States Marine.
Have a wonderful Memorial Day, everyone.
