Happy Birthday MARINES!

Coming from a family with strong military traditions, but no brand loyalty, we have quite a few jarheads in the gene pool. 234 years ago the Marine Corps was started in a bar of all places. The Marines have been keeping our shores safe for all that time, and endangering the shores of all who would opose us, and the dives, watering holes and youthful innocense of the women of those who would befriend us.
Our Marines have served us well in war and in peace. Many of them have given their last full measure, and tonight I salute all of you. and tonight, may you end up in a bar, among friends, and enjoy the thanks of a grateful nation.
