Our Empire's Army was a marching song of the Galactic Empire's Imperial Army. Lieutenant Chiron, an enthusiastic instructor at Lothal's Academy for Young Imperials, would sometimes lead cadets in a rousing rendition of this song during morning runs. The song spoke of the glory the cadets would attain upon claiming their place in the Imperial Army, speaking of many locations to be protected and served in the Empire.

"From the razor cliffs of Mittoblade
We will fight our Empire's battles
We will strive for right and order
And to keep galactic peace
On the day we claim our place
In our Empire's Army.
A salute to you from these cadets
Assembled here to serve
In many a fight we'll show our might
And never lose our nerve.
Oh, we'll lay them low from Old Lettow
To distant Gardaji
Our every story told for the gloryOf our Empire's Army."

Behind the scenesEdit
"Our Empire's Army" appears as a marching song in Jason Fry's 2015 Servants of the Empire: Imperial Justice. Though no name is given for the song, the song's two verses both end with the phrase "our Empire's Army." The song includes passing mentions of several locations that had otherwise not been mentioned to date in canon, but which previously appeared in Legends sources.
The structure of the song is extremely similar to the real-life "Marines' Hymn." Author Jason Fry stated that he modeled the song after the "Marine's Hymn," with locations pulled from the continuity of Star Wars Legends substituted for real-life locations such as Montezuma and Tripoli.
