HAPPY BIRTHDAY UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS!



quote:General LeJeune's Marine Corps Birthday Message

On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of the Continental Congress. Since that date, many thousand men have borne the name Marine. In memory of them, it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the Birthday of our Corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.

The record of our Corps is one which will bear comparison with that of the most famous military organizations in the world's history. During 90 of the 146 years of it's existence the Marine Corps has been in action against the nations foes. From the battle of Trenton to the Argonne. Marines have won foremost honors in war, and in the long eras of tranquility at home. Generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every corner of the seven seas that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.

In every battle and skirmish since the birth of our Corps Marines have acquitted themselves with the greatest distinction, winning new honors on each occasion until the term Marine has come to signify all that is highest in military efficiency and soldierly virtue.

This high name of distinction and soldierly repute we who are Marines today have received from those who preceded us in the Corps. With it we also received from them the eternal spirit which has animated our Corps from generation to generation and has been the distinguishing mark of the Marines in every age. So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal to every emergency in the future as they have been in the past, and the men of our nation will regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served as "Soldiers of the Sea" since the founding of the Corps.

Happy Brithday to the Marine Corps and all who have served.


Our men are going to need us to stand with them more than ever, now that Washington has made a big shift to the left.

Real Americans will always support our troops, regardless if they agree where they are in action or how long---only an idiot would not support the men/women who stand between us and evil. I thank God for the ones who gave all-the ones who were wounded and broken, and the ones who go bravely forth, knowing they may be the same...we should use them wisely, supply them with the best of everything, and welcome them home warmly-all branches, and don't forget the Coasties-they're fighting a hard battle trying to stop drugs from coming in.Rest easy, Dan Dailey-Semper Fi!
