Today is my 230th Birthday! Happy Birthday Marines

To my Marine brothers and sisters that are with us here or if they are guarding the streets of Heaven, Happy 230th Birthday of the finest fighting force the world has ever seen. Dig in and have a slice of birthday cake. Please make sure you leave one piece for those Marines deployed around the globe tonight and in harms way.
OOH RAH and a hearty Semper Fi from Branson Missouri

I spent a year with the marines in Camp Lejune, N.C., and the day of their birthday, we were served the BEST meal of any that I ever had in service.
I still think of that each time they have a birthday.

Thumbs up

Happy Birthday Marines....!!!

You are the best...and we always count on YOU.
You have always come through.

I always like to thank the Marines, and the Air Force and the Navy...as they watched over my Son in the Army in Iraq all of 2004.

Oh the SeaBees were there too.........never to be omitted.

A few good men are hard to find........that's what they say.....could be it's because they are all in the Marines?

My Son retired from the Army after 24 years last spring.....he was offered the opportunity to be a DI in the Marines...........his wife drew the winning straw.

This was sent to me by a friend. I just thought I would share it with all of you.

Subject: Poem from a Marine

This is a poem being sent from a Marine to his Dad. For those who take the time to read it, you'll see a letter from him to his Dad at the bottom. It makes you truly thankful for not only the Marines, but ALL of our troops


We all came together,

Both young and old

To fight for our freedom,

To stand and be bold.

In the midst of all evil,

We stand our ground,

And we protect our country

From all terror around

Peace and not war,

Is what some people say.

But I'll give my life,

So you can live the American way.

I give you the right

To talk of your peace.

To stand in your groups,

and protest in our streets.

But still I fight on,

I don't bitch, I don't whine.

I'm just one of the people

Who is doing your time.

I'm harder than nails,

Stronger than any machine.

I'm the immortal soldier,

I'm a U.S. MARINE!

So stand in my shoes,

And leave from your home.

Fight for the people who hate you,

With the protests they've shown.

Fight for the stranger,

Fight for the young.

So they all may have,

The greatest freedom you've won.

Fight for the sick,

Fight for the poor

Fight for the cripple,

Who lives next door.

But when your time comes,

Do what I've done.

For if you stand up for freedom,

You'll stand when the fight's done.

By: Corporal Aaron M. Gilbert, US Marine Corps

Hey Dad,

Do me a favor and label this "The Marine" and send it to everybody on your email list. Even leave this letter in it. I want this rolling all over the US; I want every home reading it. Every eye seeing it. And every heart to feel it. So can you please send this for me? I would but my email time isn't that long and I don't have much time anyway. You know what Dad? I wondered what it would be like to truly understand what JFK said in His inaugural speech.

"When the time comes to lay down my life for my country, I do not cower from this responsibility. I welcome it."

Well, now I know. And I do. Dad, I welcome the opportunity to do what I do. Even though I have left behind a beautiful wife, and I will miss the birth of our first born child, I would do it 70 times over to fight for the place that God has made for my home. I love you all and I miss you very much. I wish I could be there when Sandi has our baby, but tell her that I love her, and Lord willing, I will be coming home soon. Give Mom a great big hug from me and give one to yourself too. Aaron

If this touched you as much as it touched me, please forward it on. Let's help Aaron's dad spread the word.

FREEDOM isn't FREE someone pays for you and me.

Dick and Merlene Carlson,

1109 North Main Street,

Winterport, Maine, 04496-3418.

"We can't change the winds but we can adjust our sails."

I want to wish the Marine Corp a very happy belated birthday. My dad, uncles and a son have been in the corp.
I just lost an uncle that was a retired warrant officer, first class and got to see a full military funeral for an exceptional man (he had two purple hearts and a silver star), it was an amazing site that I won't soon forget.

Thanks to all our military for the freedom that they've given us and for continuing to fight for us to keep us free.
