    I would have thought that one of the GTT Sailors would have reminded us. I can only remember so much. Of course I remember the Army birthday plus the Marine birthday is the day before Veterans Day. I'll try to remember next year the day after Columbus Day is the Navy birthday. You know h how old I am. Can you imagine how much is in my brains memory bank? Now I'll have to forget something in order to remember 13 OCT 19.

    Happy Birthday Marines!

    Bob Parsons, founder of GoDaddy, is a US Marine and Vietnam vet and puts together a birthday video each year. They are always well done and this year is no exception. Makes your heart stir.

    Edit: This appears to be last year's video. I can't locate this years. Still a worthwhile view.

    Edit Edit: Found it!

    Not to be disrespectful,, but, back in 1971,,
    us Navy guys really giggled under our breath at the Marines patrolling the Naval base,,wherever we were at,,

    The Marines were all spit and polish,, the Navy was a bunch of hippies learning how to weld,,,etc,,,
    Right after I started active duty, Zumwalt took over the Navy,, we started getting "Z-Grams"

    Long hair, beards, wearing dungarees after working hours, all became the norm,,,for the Navy,,,

    I may celebrate next October 13th,,,
