Today is the 233rd birthday of the one of greatest military forces on earth; the United States Marine Corps.   Their history of honorable service to this country has been the major contributing factor and often the single factor that won the battle.  This brave service has not been without injury and lost.  We owe our freedom to these brave honorable individuals. 

May all my fellow Marines and their family rejoice in the wonderful heritage and bond we share together.
