Happy birthday, Marine Corps!

10 November 1775-10 November 2009 (so far). I'm so proud of the Marines I know, from Joe Reynolds, Racehorse Haynes, and Harold Hyman, all the way to John Ames, David Polyansky and the three Van Niels (my hubby, my bro-in-law, and my father-in-law). I'm also proud of the Marines I haven't even met yet. What an amazing organization! Some of the best lessons on leadership and character come from the Marine Corps.

Semper fi, and happy 234th birthday, Marines!

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
