 HAPPY 234TH BIRTHDAY MARINES! SEMPER FIDELIS!

 

 

 The United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, if you've never seen them, they are an incredible unit. This is a from a performance at the Aisne-Marne American Cemetery in France, which honors American World War One veterans.The fact that the drills are performed in complete silence with only the click and thump of the rifles is an amazing display of precision, dedication, and the ability of individuals to come together for a greater purpose. We do have the best of the best and Americans should be PROUD!!

 

 

As a Birthday gift help support the The Marine Team. 

Project Valour IT's annual fundraiser for wounded warriors continues. They are within sight of their 35K goal, but need your help to get there! I can't think of a better way to celebrate the birth of our Corps than to boost the Marine team to its first victory ever.

Valour IT provides adaptive technology to help severely wounded vets recover faster, establish a support system, and regain their independence. Since the program began, every single dollar raised by Valour IT has been used to provide:

· 4,100+ voice activated laptops

· over 30 Wii systems

· and nearly 100 handheld GPS devices to wounded vets at:

Balboa Naval Hospital
Naval Hospital, Camp Pendleton
Brooke Army Medical Center
Robert E. Bush Naval Hospital
Madigan RMC
Walter Reed AMC
National Naval MC (Bethesda)
and VA centers nationwide.

The men and women of the United States military have given their all to defend the values we Americans hold dear. For the price of a few sixpacks of beer or some dip and chips, you can tell them that you honor their sacrifices and their service. Please give generously. They did:

Please take the time to also read this great post about a "Great Marine."

Always remember that freedom is not free - a tribute to our servicemen and women

Absolutely! Happy Birthday Marines! I already called my friend - Master Sergeant of Marines, William "Spanky" Gibson. If you don't know his story, you can search for him under my name right here on AR (not wanting to put a link up on Alice's blog!)

Thank you Alice - if I may - the following is a link to even more about Spanky - I have just been honored by a true hero

AND - I have just spoken to him on the phone again. He has agreed to be my guest on the radio on Thanksgiving Morning on 540 WFLA in Orlando (you can tune in on line at www.540wfla.com ). Those of you not near a computer will be able to listen to the podcast after the show.

I am so proud of our Marines!  Thanks to them for keeping our country safe.  My brother is a Marine and I'm so honored to be able to say that a member of our family served our country.  He finished his full tour about 2 years before Desert Storm.  He is not a strong conservative and still supports his brothers in uniform.

Great post Alice.

To all of the men and women who are serving today and in the past a huge THANK YOU from the botton of my heart and soul.  Happy Birthday.

This country would not be here if not for the Marines.  God Bless each and every one of you.

Happy Birthday USMC.  I live a few miles from Quantico.  When you drive up I-95 you can see the museum building.  Soring up to the sky is a saber penetrating the roof of the building.  It's lite up at night and looks awesome.

The Marines demand excellence and give it back in return.
