Happy 246th birthday to U.S. Marine Corps.

I have been celebrating USMC birthday since the 185th, 61 years ago.

Semper Fi!!!!

Happy Birthday indeed!

I read Ernie's "since the 185th" and my brain translated it to "1855".

Started wondering if the rumors of Ernie's longevity were true! :mrgreen:

Semper Fi Ernie,

I've only had 51 Marine Corps birthdays. Then again unlike you I only did 3 in uniform.

My wife even wishes me a happy birthday on Nov. 10.

Only my 17th USMC Birthday Gents, certainly feel a bit wet behind the ears compared to you fine men.

Nevertheless, Happy Birthday and Semper Fi brothers.

Indeed... happy birthday to the second most senior service!

I have know and served with many outstanding Marines in my 34-year US Army career.

The US Marines stand as a noble and distinguished brotherhood recognized worldwide as an exceptionally disciplined and effective fighting force.

SEMPER FI !
