Tun Tavern Revisited...

228 years ago today, like minded men got together in a bar in Philadelphia. The name of the joint was Tun Tavern, and the year was 1775. After much drinking, political conversation, pinching of the serving wench's buttocks, and a few bar brawls, the gentlemen present created the Marine Corps.

....and Marines around the world continue to follow in the sterling footsteps of their forebearers...

Happy Birthday to ALL of my brothers and sisters!! Semper Fidelis!

A friend, who returned from Iraq a few weeks ago, brought home to his wife the most gorgeous hand-made dress to wear to the ball. Yes, it's Happy Birthday time again.

Semper Fidelis, Marines!
