From a Flyboy to The Jarheads: Happy Birthday, Marines!
We’re proud to serve with you, no one does it like you do.
On land and air and sea
Amen, a big thank you to all the Marines who have served America.
[…] Tagsmarine corps birthday, marines, united states marine corps, usmc Thanks to Aggie Sith for the reminder that today is the birthday of the United States Marine Corps. […]
Just came back from the first of two Veterans Day ceremonies I am attending today. The head of the ROTC was wearing a wool USMC uniform, which confused me, because he was USAF. Turns out his father was a Marine, and he wore the uniform in his memory. His son is currently a Marine in Afghanistan, too.
Made me tear up 🙂
One of my grandfathers was a Marine, the other was in the Army. Both of them passed away over a decade ago, and I’ll be honoring them this week. Got lots of stories about both to pass on to my son.
Happy Birthday to the Navy’s Hitchhikers!
I keeed, I keeed.

You sure did 😉
On a totally different subject, Aggie, have you seen the Lego Star Wars Super Star Destroyer? Posted a pic of it over at my place, right before the post about the Marines. Getting one for my son for Christmas. 3500+ pieces, and it looks pretty damned cool. Kinda would like to get one for myself.
Oh yeah! Saw them online and I asked for the Death Star™ already. Hubby asked me where I was going to put it.
Like that matters… 😉
Hmmm…now if my wife asked me to get her something, and I asked her where she was going to put it, well, let’s just say I would get some very creative answers. 😀
Storied Fighters All – Happy birthday !
To the Shores Of Tripoli
PRESLEY NEVILLE O’BANNON, USMC
-killing terrorists since 1801-
Worked alongside, and was friends with many Marines of the airdale side of the house. Know a couple of “mud Marines”, one in particular was and is a constant source of pride.
To my Uncle Les, who earned the title United States Marine, durring WWII (in the Pacific Theater) Semper Fi!! Your nephew will never forget.
