Two Hundred Thirty Four years old and still kicking ass. I can’t begin to describe how proud I am of today’s Marines and their superior performance in the War on Terror.
See the Commandant’s Birthday Message at: http://www.marines.mil/usmc/Pages/2009MarineCorpsBirthdayBall.aspx
Please remember today that some Marines won’t be celebrating the Marine Corps Birthday at a fancy ball, but rather with his/her buddies in a fighting hole in a foreign country with an MRE pound cake and a swig of water from a warm canteen. God Bless them all.
