YOU SAY IT’S YOUR BIRTHDAY

Posted by Andrew Roman on November 10, 2008

Today is the 233rd birthday of the United States Marine Corps. In a nation embarrassingly quick to celebrate the most hollow among us, lavish unmerited honor on the most undeserving and commemorate the most trivial milestones, I’d like to take just a moment to honor the very bravest defenders of freedom the world has ever known.

Ted Nugent has written his own tribute, published today at HumanEvents.com:

From the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, all across America and in Iraq, Afghanistan and wherever America is being defended, the world’s most exclusive gun club is the celebrating its 233 birthday today.

Born in a roughneck Philadelphia bar in 1775 on a dare to surpass standard warrior excellence, the United States Marines Corps has distinguished itself over its history as the finest military force the world has ever seen. Do not point the US Marines Corps at anything you do not wish conquer. They are the pointy end of America’s spear.

They not only fight for America, but for each other. This is the definition of ‘espirit de corps”.

When we get older, it’s natural to think about whether we’ve actually done something worthwhile. This is not the case for the leatherneck men and women of the mighty US Marine Corps.

President Reagan said it best: “Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.”

Semper Fi.

God Bless America.
