Today is a special day for all Marines past and present. Today is our 233rd birthday. It's been almost 17 years since I left the Marine Corps, but it's 5 years of my life that is very much alive in me today.
If you know a Marine or a former Marine, be sure to wish them a Happy Birthday today. With tomorrow being Veterans' Day, go ahead and thank them for their service in advance too.
To all my fellow Marines, Happy Birthday Devil Dogs and Happy Birthday Chesty Puller...wherever you are!
