Happy Birthday Jarheads!
Today is the 234th birthday of the United States Marine Corps.
You have to love a branch of the military founded in a bar!"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
Lt. Ray McCormack, FDNY

Spent the day at the USMC museum in Quantico. A great place. There was a cake cutting ceremony. Before the cutting there was an announcement looking for the oldest and youngest former and current Marines there to participate. The youngest enlisted January '09 and the oldest was in a wheelchair who enlisted in 1935.
