Happy 232nd Birthday Devil Dogs! Y’all don’t look a day over 150 and I personally don’t feel a day over 200.

232 years ago the 2nd Continental Congress passed a resolution calling for forming 2 battalions of Marines. Our first headquarters was Tuns Tavern and I can think of no better place than a bar for our beloved Corps to be born.

Our first recruiter was Capt. Robert Mullen, a bar keep.

Our first recruiting incentive was two free beers for all who signed up.

Any one else seeing a pattern here?

So drink up Marines! Our Beloved Corps has put more enemies of our great nation in the ground than any warrior could ever ask for. We have fought in every war, declared or undeclared, and in more forgotten places and times than most will ever know. And as you are downing your libations remember, there are Leathernecks out there who will be cutting the cake in far less than comfortable surroundings, as I’m sure we all have at one time or another. Pop one for them, and raise a toast for those who went before, for those who serve now, and for those to follow. And save one special toast for the empty seat at the head table.

To All Who Have Ever Earned the Eagle Globe and Anchor, Happy Birthday and

Semper Fidelis!

ega.jpg

Now Drop and Give Me 232 for the Corps!

 

 

 

P.S. Here’s a little Birthday present for all you civilians, courtesy of the USMC. No need to run, you’ll only die tired.

    Happy Birthday my Marines friends! May you have many more! Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, rest assured that you are NOT forgotten by your fellow soldiers everywhere. Be proud! Your Corps has accomplished many feats and helped make the world a better place, albeit at a high price. This too will NEVER be forgotten. Enjoy your celebrations, you more than earned that right!

    I will even take the liberty of wishing you a continuing glorious history of behalf of my fellow Canadians. We do follow your labors throughout the many theatres of the world even if we do not necessarily comment on them!

    Semper Fi!

    Thanks crunchie!

    What do you get for a bunch of people who have made your life, as you’ve lived it, possible?

    Words are inadequate to describe what we in the United States owe to the Marines, and their equally important, if much less macho, siblings, the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard.
    Thanks guys, all the best.

    Happy 232nd, United States Marine Corps! No Method exists on this big blue marble for ever calculating the depth of your benefit to this country, but I am so glad that you are ours! The few, the proud, the Marines! - and we are blessed as a Nation to have you.

    You do us proud.

    Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU!

    Semper Fi to the Marines out there. May you continue to be more than the media will give you credit for, and may you continue to outshine some of the posers like Murtha, Ritter, and others who said they were Marines…..

    Good luck to the Corps.

    I had the best Birthday present possible today, Crumb Crunchie called and I was able to wish the new Marine his first Happy Birthday. After talking shop and asking him to check on a few Camp LeJeune slop chutes I used to frequent during his first off base liberty, I reminded him of this.

    LC Crunchie

    A very Happy B-Day to you, as a Marine, and to your beloved Corps as a whole. It is notable that the world doesn’t tremble befor the USMC, only its’ enemies do and that is the finest tribute to the greatest assemblage of fighting men that the world has known in almost two and a half centuries.
    Fortunately, for the Marines, the parachute wasn’t invented for full scale combat units for about one and half centuries after the first Jarhead fell overboard otherwise you’d be scrolling Battle Honours for hours!!

    Enjoy the day and I’ll hoist one for every maginificent troop that ever wore the Globe and Anchor !!
