    OK, I admit, I am a little bit biased, but on this the Birthday of my beloved Marine Corps, I would just like to say how thankful I am to all those who have paid and are paying for freedom throughout the globe. Thank God for the brave souls who BUY me the right to share openly my faith, and declare the finished work of Christ on Calvary. Thank God that right now, here at work, I do not have to worry about soldiers breaking in and hurting my family while I am gone for what we believe. Thank God for FREEDOM! OOHRAH and Semper FI!

    From the lump in my throat I am just glad that I am typing instead of talking.

    OOH RAH...

    From the retired Master Chief Petty Officer...

    btw Doc Rolen... you are not a USMC corpsman... you are a Navy Corpsman assigned to a Marine Unit.

    God Bless

    Hey all to all USMC, I didn't know it was yalls B day, Happy B day. I used to transport you guys around from 1963-1967. I was a Machinist Mate on the USS Guadalcanal LPH 7 out of Norfolk.

    Are any you old enough to have been in the Corp in those days ? or if you'd been on the Guad, you can drop me an em.

    Anchors Away!

    Happy Birthday, USMC, from this ole Pharmacist's Mate(USS Wainwright,DLG 28)(DLG meant D estroyer L eader G uided missile)

    We carried Marines to & from various Pacific 3rd world rat holes. Since I was the ONLY medical person on the ship, everyone was nice to me.

    Our skipper was somewhat liberal(he abolished saluting while at sea, was lax about dress regs while at sea,etc.) he would NOT tolerate any badmouthing of one service by the other unless the word "RUSSIAN" was included. He was a ww2 vet & hated Russia and all things Russian. He reminded us that US NAV & USMC were as the right & left arms of a boxer, parts of THE SAME BODY, working for the same goals.

    My job in Nam was digging foreign objects outta shot-up US personnel, about 2/3 of whom were MARINES. God Bless ALL our armed forces.

    Thank you,
    Chesty Puller

    and all other WW2 commanders I mighta forgotten for the moment, as well as the over 30,000 casualties of all types you suffered so that I and the other baby boomers could grow up speaking English insteada German or Japanese.

    God bless you Marines, jarhead. You are all around and all through America: I have a nephew in Iraq, an ex-marine missionary co-worker, a college roommate whose son was in Iraq.

    May God protect and use our troops. [​IMG]
