Last night my unit celebrated the 231st birthday of the national treasure that is our Marine Corps. The celebration was actually early–the date of birth is actually 10 November, 1775.
It was a splendid affair with much cheer and pomp. Yet for all the external hoopla, internally it refocused me on my mission and the role the Marines have played in history. I’m proud to be in the company of such heroes.
Semper Fidelis, and Success to the Marines!
