As I sat down to write this year’s Marine Corps Birthday post, I was struggling. I realized that what I wrote last year is exactly how I feel every time November 10th roles around – overwhelming pride and overwhelming sadness. Here’s my post – Happy Birthday Marines – Semper Fi!
My wonderful first love was one of the greatest Marines & he loved every day till he retired(but that is still Who he is). I also lost agreatfriend in Vietnam
237 years ago.......a few good men.......got together at The Tun Tavern......and the brotherhood of the Corps was formed. Semper Fi, Devil Dogs!
@[email protected] You'd be surprised at all of the creative (alternate) definitions for USMC that Marines have come up with. Here's a couple more, U Suckers Missed Christmas, and U Signed the Motherfucking Contract.
@Old PH2 Hats off to Old BM1 too. Those beach masters had stones.
@Old PH2 Yep. I carried an M9 and had an M16 locked up somewhere. When they busted my chops about not carrying the M16 around, I told them not to worry cuz if I ever needed it they would all be dead already.
