THE ENGINEER TOAST

Here's a health to the Army.
And here's a health to our Corps;
Here's to the Flag flying up on the hill,
And the bird flying over our door:
Stand by with your glasses all brimming,
Here's health, and here's how, and here's luck.
And here's to the Castles of Silver we wear.
And "the Eagle that looks like a Duck."

Author: Sherwood A. Cheney
Brigadier General, U.S. Army
1898
