Happy Birthday U.S. Marine Corps


Happy Birthday to all my dear Devil Dog friends both here and overseas, active and honorably discharged. Have a great Marine day and Semper Fi.

Watch this tough Leather Neck...

GENERAL WILSON'S BIRTHDAY TOAST
On the occasion marking the birthday of the US Marine Corps, 1978, onboard
Camp LeJeune, and in the presence of several thousand Marines and their
ladies, General Louis H. Wilson, CMC, arose to deliver his long awaited
address to the troops. He approached the rostrum, nodded to the CG's
(Base, FSSG and Division) and proceeded to explain to the captive masses
that he would be short on words that night - then turned to his bride, took a
glass and, amid absolutely DEAD SILENCE, offered this toast - and
promptly SAT DOWN.


LOVE
THE WONDERFUL LOVE OF A BEAUTIFUL MAID,
THE LOVE OF A STAUNCH TRUE MAN,
THE LOVE OF A BABY, UNAFRAID,
HAVE EXISTED SINCE TIME BEGAN.
BUT THE GREATEST OF LOVES,
THE QUINTESSENCE OF LOVES,
EVEN GREATER THAN THAT OF A MOTHER,
IS THE TENDER, PASSIONATE, INFINITE LOVE,
OF ONE DRUNKEN MARINE FOR ANOTHER.


THE WHOOPIN AND HOLLERIN WENT ON FOR A GOOD TEN MINUTES
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AND SEMPER FIDELIS
