United States Marine Corps #4

"Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They’re aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They’ve got really short hair and they always go for the throat."- Adm. "Jay" R. Stark, USN

Happy Birthday, Jarheads!

The Corps is 232 years old today.

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

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

Remember us.

Honor us.

And honor these young men.  They are our future.

“They told (us) to open up the Embassy, or “we’ll blow you away.” And then they looked up and saw the Marines on the roof with these really big guns, and they said in Somali, “Igaralli ahow,” which means “Excuse me, I didn’t mean it, my mistake.”

 Karen Aquilar, in the U.S. Embassy; Mogadishu, Somalia, 1991

 “Our Country won’t go on forever, if we stay soft as we are now. There won’t be any AMERICA because some foreign soldier will invade us and take our women and breed a hardier race!”
