On the 241st anniversary of the Marine Corps

In a crowd you're bound to spot him; he stands so very tall. Not too much impresses him. He's seen and done it all. His hair is short. His eyes are sharp, but his smile's a little blue. It's the only indication of the hell that he's been through. He belongs to a sacred brotherhood, always faithful 'til the end. He has walked right into battle and walked back out again.

So next time you see a devil dog standing proud and true, be grateful for all he's given. He's given it for you. Don't go up and ask him what it's like to be in war. Just thank God that it's your country he's always fighting for. And thank him too for all the hell he's seen in cammie green. Thank him for having the guts to be a United States Marine.  (by Geraldine Mihalko)
