    Happy Birthday Marines!
    I hope this 239th birthday of our Corps finds you and yours happy, healthy, and safe. God speed to those brothers and sisters going in harm's way.
    It was a pleasure and an honor to have served with you all.
    Semper Fi,
    Greg

    I guess my son will enter in the 240th year. He heads to San Diego like Jan 10th for basic.

    He signed up for some sort of Marine Security which required a 5 year hitch. Two years of the security thing and then three as infantry or some sort.

    I guess that could change as time goes on. He seems ready and doesn't seem to have any signing remorse.

    Kind of wish I could go with him myself but I'm not an early riser and I hate being told what to do, probably not good assets for a Marine.
    Very few violets though, that would be good.

    Wear it proudly Cato. I know we're proud of you and thankful for your service.
