Happy 235th Birthday

A customer came in this morning. He’s one of our regulars. He asked “How do I look at 235?” I told him there is no way he weighed in at 235lbs.

He reminded me today is the 235th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. I was embarrassed I didn’t remember.

I shook his hand and thanked him for his service.

Without him and the other men and women like him, I would not have the freedoms I currently have, including bringing you this small, insignificant blog.

To John and Skip and the millions of others who have served in the USMC, Happy Birthday and Semper Fi!

    Voice-over done by Fred Thompson, if I'm not mistaken.

    Thank you for posting it. I've thanked Veterans all day today.
