Happy Birthday US Marine Corps!!

Post by S7 K1ll3rKlown on Thu Nov 10, 2011 9:03 am

Today is a very special day for thousands of men and women serving this great nation. The Marine Corps has been around since 1775, and on 10 November we all stop, thank each other, and thank fellow Marines families for the sacrifice and lives lost around the world. There is no other branch that celebrates their existence like the Corps, because it is indeed special and unique in every way. There are massive Marine Corps balls in every city and every state, every nation and every corner of the world. Men and women, young and old are dressed in their best Dress Blues and evening gowns to take part of this great tradition and celebrate with other brothers and sisters. The membership into this exclusive club is one that can't be bought, you aren't guaranteed admission, and once you're in-- you're my brother for life. This membership is unlike membership into any fraternity or sorority in the world. This is bigger than being a Masonic brother or any state congressman. Today we celebrate the ones that have gone before us and the ones yet to hold the torch. Today we celebrtate our freedom and what we hold most dear....pride, tradition, honor, sacrifice, loyalty, and an undying committment to God, family, country, and Corps!

Today, take a minute to stop and thank any Marines you see on the street, local stores, or gas stations-- be it present Marines or salty war-torn veterans and just say Happy Birthday.

Happy 236th Birthday Marines!!

And, of course, General John A. Lejeune's birthday message:

MARINE CORPS ORDERS
No. 47 (Series 1921)
HEADQUARTERS U.S. MARINE CORPS
Washington, November 1, 1921

The following will be read to the command on the 10th of November, 1921, and hereafter on the 10th of November every year. Should the order not be received by the 10th of November, 1921, it will be read upon receipt.

(1) On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name "Marine". In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.

(2) The record of our corps is one which will bear comparison with that of the most famous military organizations in the world's history. During 90 of the 146 years of its existence the Marine Corps has been in action against the Nation's foes. From the Battle of Trenton to the Argonne, Marines have won foremost honors in war, and in the long eras of tranquility at home, generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every corner of the seven seas, that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.

(3) In every battle and skirmish since the birth of our corps, Marines have acquitted themselves with the greatest distinction, winning new honors on each occasion until the term "Marine" has come to signify all that is highest in military efficiency and soldierly virtue.

(4) This high name of distinction and soldierly repute we who are Marines today have received from those who preceded us in the corps. With it we have also received from them the eternal spirit which has animated our corps from generation to generation and has been the distinguishing mark of the Marines in every age. So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal to every emergency in the future as they have been in the past, and the men of our Nation will regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served as "Soldiers of the Sea" since the founding of the Corps.

JOHN A. LEJEUNE,
Major General Commandant

"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world.
The U.S. MARINES don't have that problem."
- Ronald Reagan, President of the United States
