They have come a long way from the tavern in Philadelphia where the Corps was founded 233 years ago. Beaufort is so proud to be able to join in celebrating such an amazing birthday.
As non-military, my appreciation is from a different perspective, but true just the same.
Thank you for waking at 3am so that I can sleep as long as I like.
Thank you for going to scary places so I don't have to go.
Thank you for sacrificing time with your family, so that mine can freely meet.
Thank you for believing in our country even when everyone else does not.
I am so fortunate to live in Beaufort, SC where just across the deep water of the Beaufort River, is a constant reminder of the few, and the proud.
Happy Birthday US Marine Corps!.....and many more.
