Happy Birthday, Jarheads!

The Corps is 232 years old today.

The Dress Blues are pretty but this is who we really are:

And this is what we do:

 And sometimes we pay the ultimate price:

 We Marines have sacrificed and died for you for 232 years. 

Remember us.

Honor us.

And honor these young men.  They are our future.

  1. Is it just me, or are Marines better looking than the members of the other branches of the military?

    Happy Birthday and God bless you all.

  3. I definitely think the marines have something about them…but that’s just this gals opinion, and I better watch it because Jose was in the Airforce. 🙂
