Saturday morning we went to a local Marine Corps birthday breakfast. Everyone is welcome, but there is always a really good gathering of local Marines from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Iraq. Its always great hearing everyone introduce themselves. One of the WWII Marines was naming off his battles that he was in, and got a pretty big laugh when he finally remembered one of them, "oh yeah, Iwo Jima!" This particular Marine was in WWII, Korea, and in his words, "they finally kicked me out after Vietnam!"
Semper Fi Marines, and a big thanks to everyone else who once served and is still serving!
