    I've worn two uniforms in my life. The first was in the Boy Scouts, as an eagle scout (BSA is celebrating 100 yrs this year). The second was as a Marine sargent. Very proud of both... SEMPER FI, and happy birthday.

    From an old retired Doggie sergeant who had nothing but respect for the Marines he had the privilege of teaching:

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MARINES!!

    On this date in 1775, the first guy to sign on the dotted line in Tun Tavern in Philadelphia turned, looked at the second guy in line, and said "Things were different in the old Corps!"

    I agree! God bless the USMC!

    Semper Fi to all my brothers and sisters out there. We do look damn good for 235 yrs old.
    This site has been hijacked by leftists who attack opposition to further their own ends. Those who have never served this country and attack those who do are no longer worthy of my time or attention.

    Nice to see another Eagle Scout around. I received my Eagle in 2007.

    The only government control I need, is a good set of grips on my 1911.
