November 10, 2008 marks the 233rd birthday of the United States Marine Corps.
To celebrate this occasion Go Daddy is proud once again to release a special birthday tribute to the Corps.
For those of you who served or are serving in other branches of our military, please accept this salute to the Marines also as a salute to the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard. The reason I prepared this salute to the Marine Corps was simply because I served in the Corps and it was in the Corps that I grew up and became a man. Please know, I have the utmost respect and admiration for everyone in our military - past and present.
Finally, a special message to my brothers and sisters who served our country in Viet Nam; thanks for all you did, WELCOME HOME!
Bob Parsons CEO and Founder
Semper Fi and happy birthday to my brothers and sisters.
*Absolutely* worth watching.
“Resolved, That two Battalions of marines be raised, consisting of one Colonel, two Lieutenant Colonels, two Majors, and other officers as usual in other regiments; and that they consist of an equal number of privates with other battalions; that particular care be taken, that no persons be appointed to office, or inlisted into said Battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve to advantage by sea when required: that they be inlisted and commissioned to serve for and during the present war between Great Britain and the colonies, unless dismissed by order of Congress: that they be distinguished by the names of the first and second battalions of American Marines, and that they be considered part of the number which the continental Army before Boston is ordered to consist of.”
Journal of the Continental Congress, 10 November 1775.
Thanks for the welcome home. I served in the evacuation of Saigon and the stain of that retreat has been on my heart for a very long time. I cringe when I think of what obammy will do to my beloved Marine Corps...
Where do we get young men and women like this?
There will always be a few of the strong and brave who will come forward to fight for the freedoms of The United States of America.
I have three cousins who came home from Vietnam. I was a young child then, wearing tie-dye shirts and peace signs. I had no idea what was going on, but cringe that I participated to undermine them.
Thanks, all, for your service. I mean it from the bottom of my heart.
