    “Of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are nothing but targets, nine are real fighters . . . We are lucky to have them . . . They make the battle. Ah, but the one. One of them is a warrior . . . and he will bring the others back.”
    -Heraclitus, c. 500 B.C.

    Upon my arrival at Parris Island years ago I remember the following echoing down the squad bay:
    “You are not marines! And your not civilians! Your the nasty @$## in between!”
    And so began a lesson in humility… :)

    If the Army and the Navy ever look on Heaven’s scenes
    they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines

    A ‘Thank you!’ and ‘Semper fi!’ to the USMC, one of the branches of the fine US military that has saved our bacon here in Europe on several occasions during the past century. A debt not yet forgotten, at least at my place.

    Many thanks to you, Father, for remembering the Corps on its 238th birthday.

    To my fellow Marines past and present who have served the Republic and Corps with honor, Semper Fidelis and may Almighty God bless you.

    Happy Birthday Marines! From the Senior Service

    Our parish is tithing the weekly collections for November to both CCHD and the Archdiocese for Military Services. I don’t feel comfortable donating to CCHD, so AMS gets what I would have given to the parish this week. I’ll wait until December to give the rest of the November tithe to my parish.

    A.A. Cunningham how appropriate a name. Enjoy your flight!

    It is true back in 1775 that my Marine Corps did indeed come alive.

    Happy Birthday to you!

    God Bless America and Her Loyal Marines.

    And may my Corps stay faithful to America and NOT to its would-be tyrant.

    Semper Fi

  10. EXCHIEF says:

    I’m not a Marine but I’ve worked with and around them most of my career. Happy Birthday to the Corps and to all who have served in it past and present. There is a reason there are no ex-Marines. It is a title and an honor that remains forever. God Bless the United States Marine Corps (and the Navy Chaplains assigned to it!!)

    …..and yet we still do not rate a “Google Doodle”
    Cesar Chavez gets one on Easter sunday, but The United States Marine Corps gets bubkis.
    Semper Fi!
