Today, our Marine Corps is 234 years old. This past weekend, I was privileged to attend a Birthday Ball with my Marine. After all these years, I am still affected by the presence of history and fraternity that is part and parcel of a Birthday Ceremony. From their birth at Tun Tavern to the current Long War, our Marines have a long and storied history. Bob Parsons of GoDaddy.com has a lovely tribute to the Marines and their history here.
I'm so proud of my Marine and all our Marines. It truly is a privilege to be associated with them. Happy Birthday, Marines!
