Dedicated to Commodore Ramon Alcaraz PMA 1940 (R.I.P. 6/25/2009) Bataan POW and to all Peemayers

PMA, OH! Hail To Thee


Oh, proud and bold you stand!
Bright beacon of the land
Let loyal sons proclaim
Thy glorious name

Wherever we may be
O'er land or deep blue sea,
We'll raise a song to Thee,
Academy, Oh, Hail to Thee!

At every end of day
We hope and fervent pray
The honor you instill
Doth guide our will!

May Thy sons ever be
PMA, Oh, Hail to Thee!

When bells for us are rung
And our last "taps" is sung
Let generations see
Our country free

Oh, lead to righteous way
Those solid ranks of gray
Thy virtues to display
Academy, Oh, Hail to Thee


Music by: Quirico P. Evangelista (PMA '40)
Lyrics by: Reynaldo A. Mendoza (PMA '40)


Housed in small quarters
shut off from the outside world.
Deep, deep below the sea,
thoughts of survival keeping watch.
The cook roast a chicken or turkey,
to celebrate this special season.
Fifteen minutes time out to eat
back to the work station

keeping watch deep below
or above the unpredictable seas.
No time to remember Christmas.
A moment of weak emotions
makes a difference of life or death.
Christmas as other holidays
are hidden deep inside each man
who choose to serve aboard
a World War II submarine.

By Mary Nida Smith

The Boys In Blue Are Turning Gray


                                 W.C. Parker, 1895

The years have come, the years have gone.....
And in the track of ruthless Time.....
Are strewn the graves of heroes brave,.....
Who fell ere life had reached its prime....
The lapse of years has hushed the din.....
Of can-non's roar and trumpet's blast;.....
The arm-ied hosts of boys in blue.....
Are but a spec-tre of the past.....

Peace to the fearless boys in blue,.....
Who saved their country's sacred name.....
Whose daunt-less deeds are grav-en deep.....
On Hon-or's mon-uments of fame!
Their ranks are dai-ly grow-ing less;.....
The bat-tle's din has died a-way;.....
Their foes have vanished with the years;.....
The boys in blue are turn-ing gray!.....

No more the tread of marching feet....
Keep step to stirring martial strains,.....
And but the mem-o-ry of war.....
Among the boys in blue re-mains.....
The brawn-y forms of those brave lads.....
Are bowed and bent with years to-day;.....
Their once bright eyes are growing dim;.....
The boys in blue are turning gray!.....

The foes of yore are foes no more;....
The "gray coats" mingle with the blue;.....
One flag floats proudly o-ver all;.....
The em-blem of a na-tion true!.....
The dove of Peace spreads out her wings.....
And war and car-nage steals a-way;.....
The "men of gray" are now true blue.....
And "Boys in Blue" are turning gray!.....
