Happy 237th Birthday, Leathernecks!

237th_Marine_Corps_Birthday

Here’s a quote for the feast day, from an unlikely source.

You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth – and the amusing thing about it is that they are.

— Father Kevin Keaney, 1st Marine Division Chaplain, Korean War

As it was in 1775, is now, and ever shall be, one Marine Corps without end.

Semper Fidelis, and Amen!

How about a couple of songs? I’m in the mood for some bagpipes, myself.
