Where to begin ... where to begin?
First and foremost, I am not a Marine.
Back in the day I served in the USAF, proudly of course.
The reason I say I am Not a Marine, versus I Wasn't, is that I, through association with, have come to realize that Once = Always with regards to the
Corps. On more than one occasion I've been reminded that there is No such thing as an "ex" MARINE
Your tribute to the upcoming anniversary is truly commendable, and, in my opinion, would bring a tear to the eye and a smile to the face of Any who
can rightfully say I AM A MARINE.
An accomplishment and title Not to be taken lightly, for those unfamiliar with.
Stand Tall, Stand Proud, and, for those who can affirm to said title and have earned the right, Take pride in that which you are.
A UNITED STATES MARINE.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, USMC!
