    Default To The Corps!

    While I am 4 hours or so early, I must not shirk my annual duties.

    To my fellow Leathernecks, Devil Dogs, Magnificent Bastards, and Warriors:

    Happy Birthday.

    Semper Fidelis!

    As we celebrate our 230th birthday, let us not forget to raise a glass to our Warriors deployed.

    That is because you weren't in "The Old Corps."

    Hats off to our nation's defenders, past and present, those who have made the ultimate sacrifice and those who have survived a hell that many of us could never fully understand. May strength, honor, and courage return our troops safely. Happy Veteran's Day, and a belated birthday wish to the Corps

    Grunt! I was a battery operated grunt of sorts. I was in 1st Radio Bn at K-bay. Of course you are definitely "Old Corps" to me Sir. I wasn't even born until 1974.

    It was Chesty that said that at the Chosin.

    SF Sir. Amazing how it crosses all generations.

    I was getting gas last Spring and my car has a Marine Corps sticker (or two) on it. This older gentleman comes up to me and introduces himself, asks if I was a Marine. I say yes, and we have a good conversation for a few minutes. Turns out he was a Marine in WWII on either Iwo or Okinawa (I think Oki.)

    Two marines with 40 years of age difference between them can just pick up and carry on like we were in the same fighting hole or in the same Company. Blows my mind every time.

    I can't believe I missed this thread...

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARINES !!!!

    A hearty "OOHRAH" to our brothers and sisters deployed in harms way.

    And for those who didn't make it to the Ball, General Lejeune's original Birthday message, 1921:

    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.
