Semper Fi Marine! And happy birthday!
Bless you and Semper Fi, Marine. Thanks for your service to this country and your contribution to continuing our liberties.
I didn’t much care at all for Bea Arthur’s politics, but you have to give credit where credit is due - she served at a time when she didn’t have to, and could easily have gotten out of serving by not enlisting. So I give her credit for that; not much else, mind you, but that she deserves.
The oldest living people in the US are 115 (two women born in August 1905). The list of the 50 oldest living people in the world is exclusively women. The oldest is 117.
The oldest living Marine, who served in WWII just turned 111 this past week....I’m confused....
