Marine Corps Birthday – 2015

November 10th is when we celebrate the birthday of the United States Marine Corps.  Over the years our faithful Marines have given us plenty to celebrate!

“My only answer as to why the Marines get the toughest jobs is because the average Leatherneck is a much better fighter.  He has far more guts, courage, and better officers…These boys out here have a pride in the Marine Corps and will fight to the end no matter what the cost.” (2nd Lt. Richard C. Kennard, Peleliu, World War II)

Marine Corps

“The Marines…will never disappoint the most sanguine expectations of their country. Never!  I have never known one who would not readily advance in battle.” (Capt. C. W. Morgan, USN in a letter to Brevet BGen Archibald Henderson, 1852

Happy Birthday USMC!

    1. Thank you! You know it’s my pleasure. I was so happy that my top arrived on time. I got it at about 4:00pm yesterday. I had about 15 minutes to try and get an acceptable photo before I had to put my mom clothes back on and head out to football practice with my son. By the way, they made it to the bowl game! Last weekend was a very, very close game. It went into double overtime! It was an emotional and fun win for the team. This Saturday is the big game!
