Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps!

Today is the birthday of the United States Marine Corps. So to our readers celebrating this event, have fun at whichever of the thousands of Marine Corps balls around the world you plan on attending.

From Presley O'Bannon's first campaign to protect America from Islamic terror to Chesty Puller's heroics at Guadalcanal and the Battle of the Chosin Reservoir, on through all the Vietnam vets and men currently in Iraq and Afganistan currently in harms way — we thank you for your service. You've done more for world peace than the UN plus every NGO, ever, combined. Semper fi.
