Semper Fidelis

Today is the Marine Corps' birthday, as it were. Uncle Sam's Misguided Children were formed November 10th, 1775, and they've been putting the fear of God and America in our enemies ever since.

While I may be somewhat biased in my choice of service (GO ARMY!) the Marines have my utmost respect. My father spent 22 years as a Marine.

Yeah, we have some interesting family reunions.

DAD: So, what does Army stand for again? Ain't Real Marines Yet?

ME: Aren't the Marines just a sub-department of the Navy or something like that?

Anyways, Happy Birthday, Marines! No matter what uniform you wear, we all have the same first two letters - U.S.
