Do we get to cut a cake? Yum... Although I'm neither the youngest nor oldest "Marine" (AF guy in disguise) present so I'll have to wait in line. My sword & scabbard are "missing" too so someone else will have to do the slicing.

I'm a little late for the "party" but a very happy belated Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps. No telling where we'd be without them...probably speaking a different language under the rule of another country perhaps. To the "leathernecks" - many happy returns.
And a happy Veterans Day to ALL vets of ALL branches of the military! (I realize I'm a day late for this msg too...sorry!) We would definately be less than what we are today without the sacrifices of those heroes who've gone before us!!
