Marine Corps 236th Birthday

Happy Birthday Marines!!!!

Our Marine is in California this year celebrating with his wife at a Marine Corps Ball. We know he’ll be wearing his dress blues tonight and she’ll be decked out too.  We can’t wait to see the pictures! But, since they haven’t sent us any yet from the evening we thought we would post this picture instead.

Of course, this moment in time was a few years back; our Marine had a chance to get his picture taken with the President after completing his “tour” of duty in DC.  He went on to do two combat tours in the Middle East, returning this past February from a tour in one of the “Hot Spots” in Afghanistan with his battalion, the 2/9.  He recently transfered to the West Coast and will be stationed state-side for a while we hope, enjoying his family and being a machine gunner’s instructor/evaluator.

To those of you who share this birthday, we wish you the very best.  And the rest of you, we hope you have a chance to get to know these fine men and women who have been defending our country for the past 236 years.  Semper Fi friends.

Sincerely,

R.W. and Lisa

    As the father of a newly minted Marine (graduated 8/5/11 from San Diego, now actively working his MOS at DLI Monterey), I can imagine how proud you are of your Marine.

    Incredible picture With Pres. Bush too.
