November 10th is an important day to me and in my household. It’s the day that we celebrate: The Few. The Proud. The Marines.
I’m proud to call myself a ‘military brat.’ I’m even more proud to call myself a ‘Marine Corps brat.’ I respect all of our military branches but the Marines are nearest and dearest to my heart. My dad is a retired Marine, my Person is a former Marine (are you ever really a former Marine though?) and throughout my father’s long career, I had the privilege of gaining Marine brothers and a Marine sister. The Marines literally make up my family and I couldn’t be happier.
So today is an important day. A respected day. 242 years ago, something went right.
Happy birthday Devil Dogs. Semper Fidelis.
