Celebrating the 242nd birthday of the finest fighting force ever known. Ooh-Rah!

Momma Momma can't you see what the Corps has done for me.

Happy Birthday Chesty Puller where ever you are.

Happy birthday to our fine allies. Disagree with the "finest fighting force ever known" obviously. We all know who that actually is.

I'll be sure to down a pint for all the "self propelled sandbags*" throughout those glorious 242 years



*Just some good natured ribbing to our younger sibling - no offence intended

Did Crayola crank up the factories to put extra on the shelves?

Happy birthday to those that made that transition.

Leathernecks in the battletops.
Was it really that long ago?
Thank you USMC for all you have sacrificed for our country.

242 years of protecting your right to say things like your asinine post, and your welcome.

And thank you for providing one of the most pathetically unoriginal comments ever seen on ATS. After you have been around a while and maybe even grown up a bit, you'll realise what an accomplishment that is.

Your right...it gonna take some growing up to realize murdering innocent people is necessary for my freedom.

And with that equally ridiculous comment you further demonstrate that you have absolutely no understanding of the fact that freedom comes at a very high cost. You cheapen the loss of those innocent lives with your child like ranting.

Freedom doesn't come at a cost. Those are just lies to justify murder of innocent lives. Military propaganda. How does killing a child in Korea protect me? How does killing an entire family in the middle east protect me? It doesnt. America is the bad guy. Get over your military pride.

You're very welcome. That's one of the things we do best...killing bad people that are killing good people.

Well there it is folks, right there in the opening line, can anyone honestly say that "Freedom does not come at a cost" is not one of the stupidest things ever said by anyone ever? As for my military pride, I cannot get over it because it is part of who I am and I earned it, something else you clearly know nothing about.

Nope. You're absolutely right.

It just shows up on your doorstep and goes *knock knock* 'Excuse me, my name is Freedom. I know you live in a totalitarian society so I'm just gonna move in and everything will be fine after that. You can sit your ass down in your hovel and not watch the TV you don't have while I sort things out.'
