Happy Birthday to the Corps

From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli, to all my US Marine Corp brethren, I would like to wish you all a hardy, hooah happy birthday.

Semper Fidelis.

Semper Fi !

My dad who was a Marine in the 50's said that back then the USMC always celebrated their birthday with a porterhouse steak dinner for all Marines. The best meal of the year.

I ripped this off from a Marine friend of mine who ripped it from the United States Marine Corps facebook page but it says it best:

To Marines past and present, active duty and reserve, stateside and deployed around the world – Happy 235th Birthday. Semper Fidelis.

I served 6 years as a Combat Infantry Officer, leaving active duty more than 30 years ago. Yet even yesterday, on the USMC birthday, I had several strangers reach out to me and shake hands, wish me and the Corps the best and a few fellow Marines offered up the "Semper Fi" as well. I am well-known in my community, have a visible job here, and many folks know about my USMC background. But having said that, the best thing about my Marine Corps experience was the rock-solid foundation it set for me so many years ago, teaching me how to believe in values that are significant and have merit even today as I approach my sixty-first birthday. And of course the Marine Corps taught me how to believe in myself and in that it was a life-changing experience for me and I am ever thankful for it.

Charlie - I didn't mean to imply that I was in the Corps; I spent 12 years in the army 79-91.
