Today is the 238th birthday of the United States Marine Corps.
My gym friend David, a Marine, gave me this shirt which I promptly turned into a dress. I’m quite fashion forward, don’t you think? I dare say the best designer in the world couldn’t have created a design I’d be happier to wear.
“There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and those who have met them in battle. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.” (General William Thornson, U.S. Army)
“The Marine Corps has just been called by the New York Times the ‘elite of the country.’ I think it is the elite of the world. (Admiral William Halsey, U.S. Navy)
“I am convinced there is no smarter, handier, or more adaptable body of troops in the world.” (Prime Minister of Britain, Winston Churchill)
