Happy Birthday USMC!

Iwo Jima 4

Originally uploaded by photosbypjt.

The United States Marine Corps celebrates today its 231st birthday, formed on November 10th, 1775. Possibly the finest fighting force ever assembled, their history is long and colorful. If you get a chance, go check out the Marine Corps Memorial (the Iwo Jima Memorial near the Netherlands Carillon) today and remember our first fighting force.

    And what a beautiful day to do it (if you don’t have to work).
