Happy Birthday Marines!

Whenever you served, and where ever you are. Whether you sit and eat with fellow Marines at the closest birthday ball, or you just take a moment out to reflect on the service of Marines around the world.

This year take a few moments out to reflect on the service of our fallen brothers and sisters and the illustrious history of our beloved Corps.

Not a Marine, but a hearty Happy Birthday anyway.

Although I was in the Navy for 20 years, I worked with the Marines in Pensacola (actually they worked on me there ), Denver CO, USS Franklin D Roosevelt, HQ United Nations Command Korea, USS Coronado and USS Cleveland, Fleet Intelligence Center Pacific, Naval Liaison Unit Munich Germany and NORAD. The Marines I worked with were great folks (well, all but one piss-ant Colonel up at PacFlt HQ and one retired E-9 in Germany).
Happy Birthday!

I didn't say they made the decision, I said they lead the charge. Try reading before writing.

Its a tough job, but someone has to do it. This was yesterday.



President Bush, right, greets wounded Marine Corps Capt. Ryan Voltin, as he visits a physical therapy lab for wounded soldiers at the Center For The Intrepid at the Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Thursday, Nov. 8, 2007.

Well. no. Someone doesn't have to do it. Is GWB explaining where the WMD's were to that soldier?
I have no problem with the military, I have problem with corrupt politicians that misuse them.

BullSh#$ reply to the orginal post, if you have nothing nice to say with concerns to
this:

Whenever you served, and where ever you are. Whether you sit and eat with fellow Marines at the closest birthday ball, or you just take a moment out to reflect on the service of Marines around the world.

This year take a few moments out to reflect on the service of our fallen brothers and sisters and the illustrious history of our beloved Corps.

"Our" Marines? What do you mean by "our"?

And what does this have to do with road biking?

I spent this morning with Gunny Lewis, one of my fellow Legionairres, as invited guests to a mass and POW/MIA ceremony at our local Catholic School. I didn't wish him a happy Marine Corps Birthday...because it's tomorrow, right?

In any case, Semper Fi Marines. Even an Air Force vet appreciates all that you do.
