Semper Fi Marines! Happy birthday! 242 years ago the United States Marine Corps was spawned right along side the birth of our nation. Ever since then, you "Devil Dogs" have been fighting for our country in every conflict we have faced.

As a token of my appreciation, I felt the need to share this tribute video with everyone.

 The eagle born to those who pledged their lives and sacred honor was smiled upon by God and freed from chains and iron collar. He is held aloft on unity and by history revered; for preserving peace through strength his wings now reach across two hundred years. But for each of those and one year more, God has smiled upon The Corps, from the Barbary Coast to the Eastern Sand, by sword, by gun, or by bare hand. So it's been, and shall be weighed: though many are born, few are "made". Faithful Always, they shall remain, dogs to loose when war is waged.
