Happy Birthday Jarheads!

On this date in 1775, the first guy to sign his name in Tun Tavern turned to the second guy in line and said "Let me tell you how it was in the old Corps."

Happy 243rd Birthday.

I heard (maybe even here) if you put a marine in a room with 3 steel ball bearings, when you return, one will be missing, one will be broken, and the third will be pregnant.
