    Thank you to all those who have made my Corps what it is today.

    Say a prayer for those still in harms way.

    Happy b-day Marines, though I do have to say that I still don't get it. Just a bunch of crazy sailors who think they are in the Army:neener: :evil:

    (Ducks for cover, won't come out for a while)

    Seriously, I have friends who are former Marines (I learned to never call a "former" Marine an "ex" Marine just over a decade ago when talking to a friend who had been in Vietnam and left the Marine Corps as a First Sergeant I believe). I actually do have the utmost respect for the Corps and those (crazy) enough to serve in the Corps.

    This looks like the appropriate place for my first post to THR.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARINES!!

    My friend, a Marine Aviator circa 1968, and I are going for a long lunch tomorrow to celebrate today's occasion, tomorrow's, Veterans Day, and maybe purchase a new handgun or two. That sounds appropriate as well, doesn't it?

    And to all serving in harms way today and those headed out tomorrow, regardless of Branch, do your job as you've trained to do it; do not stop learning how to do it; and accept our prayers as your companion.

    Does Tun Tavern still stand? If not, I wonder what stands in its stead.

    Happy Birthday

    They say when Chesty Puller was told he was surrounded at the Chosun Resevoir, he told his staff "Thank Heaven, now we can attack in any direction!"

    Happy Birthday all.
