Happy Birthday, United States Marines!

Happy 247th Birthday to the United States Marine Corps!!  Every year, on November 10th, Marines around the globe stop to remember the birth of the Corps, often by sharing a piece of cake. The USMC has always been a part of my life.  My father and husband are both now retired Marines, and my sister is married to a current Marine. It’s been 26 years since I last put on the uniform, but November 10th is always a day of cheerful greetings and email reunions with old friends that my husband and I served with (thank you, Facebook!)  Every morning, I am grateful to get up and go to work and proudly continue to serve today’s Warfighters (but I do it now as an English Teacher, instead of a Communications Officer).  Semper Fi, Marines!
