Happy Birthday, My Fellow Marines

Good Morning Marines,

Once again, November 10th is here; another year has passed. I wish it could be a happy anniversary for our great legacy, but the tides have changed.

There comes a time in every Marine’s tour when he approaches that last mile on the field and wonders if he has the endurance to continue on. He’s exhausted after many weeks of constant turmoil and wants to stop and rest, if only for a moment. He asks himself “Why on earth did I ever stand on the yellow footprints?”

Such is the situation with many of our Brothers abroad, and many of us here who have long since hung up our boots. We are faced now with a fight that speaks to our very heritage, and that battle is here at home. It’s an enemy we know all too well; the Nemesis we were bred to fight has hit the beach. Our Lady calls our name one more time, for she is on her death-bed and in dire need.

I write to you this morning to sound the assembly. I know you are tired, and I know many of you dropped your packs a long time ago, but we swore a lifelong Oath to protect her with our dying breath. Now more than ever, we must answer the call. She is counting on us to make it through that last mile, and we MUST NOT FAIL.

Remember, and Honor your Oath. You stood on those yellow prints because you love her. Take our Lady by the hand and let her know that everything will be alright.

Happy Birthday, Brothers. Now get on your feet and follow me.

The R3volution requires action, not observation!!!!

The youngest Marine cuts the cake for Obama today!

Reminds me of one Marine Corps borthday, my dad was CO of a base, he jogged 6 miles every morning. On the Marine Corps birthday, he jogged in place waiting for the Marine Divisions to jog past the house, and when they approached the house, chanting their drills, my Dad walks out to the street and stood there salueting them until the last one passed the house and then he went for his jog. When he returned, I asked him, "What was THAT about?" He tells me, "Today is the birthday of the Marine Corps and they are a division of the Navy that makes the Navy the greatest force on earth. They deserve respect everyday, and today is their day and I want them to know on this base, they are RESPECTED. He had some big BBQ for lunch for the base... hamburgers, hortodogs, chips, BBQ beans, potato salad and allot of cake. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXpUcRVzV1s

Celebrate our birthday.....

By reading the Constitution, The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence, reaffirming our Oaths and joining Oath Keepers........

Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death.”

OORAH Marines. Happy

OORAH Marines. Happy birthday. I'm not a Marine, I'm a Seabee, the Navy's watered down less disciplined version. My father was/is a Marine though. Semper Fidelis.

BY the way, marines, are you a member of Oathkeepers? Have

For some reason, we're expected to know every law that exists in America & in our state so we don't break it. We're supposed to know this when we're 18. There's no litmus test for them, as in the 10 commandments or rhyme or reason. C.U.R.E.

you heard of Sheriff Richard Mack, since alot of you tend to become police officers afterwards?

I am not a marine, but this is definitely true for all of us

What are you fightin' for?
Caught in the middle?
Freedom is only for those with the guts to defend it!

What is the old saying the Naval Academy has? I've been in

There's no litmus test for them, as in the 10 commandments or rhyme or reason. C.U.R.E. The police's occupation is to write tickets & arrest people, even when they do it by accident.

the Navy all my bloomin' life, my mother is a mermaid and my father is king neptune, every bone in my body is a spar & when i spits, i spits tar. i's hard, i is i am i are.

Glad to know you're doing Constitutional work, even if we're occupying many, many countries for no legitimate reason.

Don't feel bad about not going to the Naval Academy, even though its the 1 graduation a year the nightly news always covers & its made out to be the magna cum laude of colleges. If you don't want to be in the military for 4 yrs. afterwards, don't go & the ones that go to & stay in get their college tuition all paid for, whereas others have to pay tuition for their degree, a fancy word for paying a fee for your college degree, or buying your college degree, like you buy a used car.

What happens to women in combat when they're menstruating, when they're pregnant?

For some reason, you are in awe of someone who is a Naval Academy graduate, but you never question someone who is reluctant or doesn't want to go into the military.

Try & get a military honors funeral if you're never been in the service, whereas those that have been in, whether they want them or not are eligible. Try to get a cardinal's funeral when you've never become a cardinal, when you couldn't b/c you were a nun.

When you are in awe of a high-ranking military official, please keep in mind that many others could've been elevated to that position & the only thing that really means is that he got promoted & he has stayed in for as long as he has. People that retired after 20 years are not going to have that happen & people that never went in aren't going to have that happen, don't be blown-away by the rank, It just means he has stayed in for as long as he has & someone thought he was worthy of a promotion, not that others aren't. It doesn't mean he is better than anyone else, it's just that he has stuck w/ his career whereas others haven't taken the same path.
