Today the USMC celebrates its' 234th birthday. I am so proud to have a husband that not only served his country but served in this amazing branch of the United States Military. God bless America and God bless the USMC!
The safest place in Korea was right behind a platoon of Marines. Lord, how they could fight!

I have just returned from visiting the Marines at the front, and there is not a finer fighting organization in the world!
General of the Armies Douglas MacArthur; Korea, 21 September 1950
The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!
Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, 1945
Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.
