US Marine Corps Birthday (Nov 10th)

Post by KristallNacht on Tue Nov 09, 2010 7:31 pm

It's almost noon on the 10th here in Okinawa. It's the Marine Corps birthday. Celebrating the 235 years of slaying bodies and killing babies. The base is a flurry of Marines wishing each other a Happy Birthday. The Chow Hall is filled to the brim with Marines, Sailors and Dependants hoping to dine on the wonderful meal of Steak, Prime Rib, Lobster Tail, and King Crab Legs the Government has provided. But all the while we're reminded of our fallen brothers and sisters. Those men and women, far greater than we, who gave their lives in the uniform we now wear. From The Revolution, to Japan, to Korea, and now to Afghanistan, they've proven that "freedom isn't free, but the United States Marine Corps will pay most of your share."

So I invite you to watch Commandant of the Marine Corps General Amos and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps SgtMaj Kent's Birthday Message to my Corps.

Happy birthday you crazy bastards Razz

I had this exchange with a friend once:

"I'm going into the Navy. Wannabe Marines make fun, and I ask 'what are you gonna do, swim to Afganistan?' And to be honest, all of them think they could."

that's clearly a testament to the Marine mentality, more so than it is justification for joining the navy.

Which was why I posted it in the Marine Birthday thread.
