    What is today ?

    http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/201...rthday_no.html

    I will have to say this has started out as the quietest Marine Birthday I've ever seen.Nothing on TV or the big WWW. about it.........I would give anything to be a young E4-E5 down at Lejuene today,what a party that was.Guess those days are gone too,everything is too PC now,can't offend anyone.

    I posted it on the front page Happy Birthday you Devil Dogs.
    In those moments where you're not quite sure if the undead are really dead, dead, don't get all stingy with your bullets.

    Happy Birthday from the Air Force to all our Marines.

    I think it has to do with all the budget cuts! It is very quiet in DC too!

    Active duty and retired Marines make up a goodly portion of my work colleagues and I've a son who spent close to 6 years on active duty. The Marine Corps Birthday has very high viz in our offices, but meetings have kept me from getting to the cake cutting 3 years running. Next time, I'll just boycott the bosses staff meeting or insist that he's made a serious scheduling error. Semper Fidelis!
