Rito, I am in Australia until early in the new year so my dulcet tones will not be available for this auspicious occasion.

I believe it's akin to our Veterans day (Nov 12th). We'll honor both ;)
My bad :oops:...I meant the 11th #-o

Much thanks to papa for putting together a local celebration of the Marine Corps birthday! I think I speak for all when I saw we had a good time.

Thanks to Bubba and June for opening their place to our celebration. The food was good, the beer was cold, and the company was entertaining. Heck, we even had a Danish officer drop in for a few moments to try to learn the secret of being a Marine, though he missed the toasts later! ;) :shock: :lol:

Thanks papa...I enjoyed the afternoon, as I believe all did!

Agreed, and thanks for the cold beer, esp. the Beer Lao, great company, good food and shots.

Hey KB there are no secrets to being a Marine, you just have to be certified insane...lol.

Thanks guys, good meeting all of you.

It was a good turn out for short notice get together and things went better than expected. I also want to thank Bubba & June for supporting us. The chow was great; Mac & Cheese, Sloppy Joe's, hot wings and tater wedges doesn't get any better than that.

Great seeing old faces (no pun intended :D ) and meeting new. Will do again next year...but no excuses for getting together in between.

Semper Fi Marines...

KB, Do believe he was there long enough to learn just a bit....maybe why he didn't stay longer...lol.

Never thought I would be the oldest, "what a revoltin' development", as William Bendix used to say, but it sure beats the alternative.

And yes to all, papaguido.

SEMPER FI!

Attention on Deck! Listen up jarheads...it’s nearly that time of the year and in keeping with tradition in celebrating the Marine Corps birthday all hands presence is requested to honor our Corps 239th birthday. The op order is in the planning phase and a show of interest is needed to go forward, please reply to this post.

Semper Fi
A Marine is a Marine, there's no such thing as a former Marine. You're a Marine, just in a different uniform and you're in a different phase of your life. But you'll always be a Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico. There's no such thing as a former Marine.

General James F. Amos, 35th Commandant of the Marine Corps

Why is this so important when not a single post was mentioned about 9/11. Just wondering

I'll let the Marines handle this, but I think if you had been through what a U.S Marine goes through you'd know.
Every day I wake up is a good day.

Has nothing to do with terrorism (rightly avenged), and everything to do with tradition rightly honoured and celebrated.

To all the Marines utmost RESPECT and Semper Fi.
