Happy Birthday Marines

Happy birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps.  Founded in 1775, the USMC has helped protect U.S. embassies around the world since 1948, I believe (at least, that’s what the speechifying at the Marine Ball indicated…).

At the Marine Ball, which celebrates the founding of the Corps, there is always a display honoring the fallen and missing:  DSC09904


Remember that freedom is not free, and be thankful for those who have given their all in service to their country.
