Happy Birthday Jarheads!

Post by randy » Fri Nov 10, 2017 1:40 pm

242 years ago today, the first guy in line at Tun Tavern to sign up turned to the second guy to sign up and said "Let me tell you how it was in the Old Corps" :D

Seriously, Semper Fi you magnificent bastards.
...even before I read MHI, my response to seeing a poster for the stars of the latest Twilight movies was "I see 2 targets and a collaborator".

There must be an end to this intimidation by those who come to this great country, but reject its culture.

THANKS guys!!!! I'm not considered a "REAL" Marine, since I was in the Air Wing and not a ground-pounder!! Even so, I'm a PROUD Marine and fly my USMC flag (along with many other Marines in my neighborhood) on military days and certain holidays.

Here's the flags flying on the front of our house this weekend:
