Today is the Birthday of the United States Marine Corp. This day back in 1775, Captain Samuel Nichols in Philadelphia, formed two battalions of Naval Infantry and to this day the USMC has been protecting us and all that we enjoy.
We live in safety of foreign invasion because we know these men and women are standing guard. They are the front line in every conflict. They give much and expect little in return. So hug a Marine and if you don’t want to do that then just say thanks and Happy Birthday. A Thank You may seem so little but to them it’s acknowledgment that their sacrifice is worth it.
So to my brother and my cousin….Happy Birthday you Devil Dogs and thanks!
