Happy birthday, Marine Corps

Yeah, people thought I forgot. No way. Today is the 237th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps. No better friend, no worse enemy. He's home now, but my son spent the last USMC birthday in Afghanistan. That's him on the left.

Very different experience for him this Birthday Ball. Got to take his girlfriend to the ball.

Please note the Combat Action Ribbon on his right side, and the medal closest to the buttons on his left is the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal. Can't help bragging. He did OK over there, and I'm really proud. Happy birthday, guys.

S/F to your great American, great MARINE, great SON. Well done and am glad that he is back for this birthday to enjoy some well-deserved time with his companion. Oh-Rah, MARINE. (I say that not as a MARINE< but a retired sailor who has spent many a MARINE birthday in the company of MARINES).
Thank him, from me please, for his service to Our Great Nation.
