"Happy Birthday to all Marines, and Happy Veterans Day. May we all take time this weekend and remember everyone who ever served.
What a life bond we all share having had the privilege of earning the
title of US Marine. This is a great time of the year to reflect on what
it means to have earned that title, and to reflect on the glorious
history of our Corps. Further, it is right that we also take
the time to remember; those we served with, those that served before us
and those that have fallen. The common bond we all share as Marines, is
a bond for life.
The true bond however, is the title we share as Marines.
May God continue to bless our Corps and the United States of America.
Happy Birthday Marines!"
