"Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they've made a difference. The Marines don't have that problem."

There seems some dispute as to whether Reagan was first to say this, but I like it regardless of its origin.

Hat tip to all Marines out there!

Semper Fi my brothers! I will be tipping a few cold ones back today to celebrate the 238th birtday of our beloved Marine Corps.

“Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have made a difference in the world. Marines don’t have that problem.” Ronald Reagan

“We have two companies of Marines running rampant all over the northern half of this island, and three Army regiments pinned down in the southwestern corner, doing nothing. What the hell is going on?” [Gen. John W. Vessey Jr., US Army, Chairman of the the Joint Chiefs of Staff; during the assault on Grenada, 1983]

For those who may not know ... one of the flag raisers on Iwo Jima, was Sgt. Michael Strank - born 10 November 1919. Remembering your birthday too Marine.
