How does it feel to be 237?

Ask a Marine. I'm guessing it feels pretty good. All over the world today, groups of U.S. Marines will be celebrating the Corps' founding 237 years ago by cutting into cakes like this one:

Or this one:

Or this:

Or . . . well, you get the picture:

Man, I'd be totally proud to guard any one of those cakes until the Marines were ready to eat it! I really would.

Happy birthday to Marines of all sizes!

Oorah! Buddy, make sure “M” gets a big slice of any celebratory cake in the neighborhood: “Once a Marine, Always a Marine!”

From the Revolutionary War to the present – “Semper Fidelis” … We owe honor and grateful thanks to all who have served and are serving in the USMC.

“Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don't have that problem.”

Ronald Reagan, President of the United States; 1985
