HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARINES!!
The place – Tun Tavern on Water Street in Philadelphia. The year – 1775. Congress had just established a need for 2 battalions of Marines to augment the Navy and serve as ground forces. This was the place to sign up. Since then, Marines have been the first to go into battle, and have earned the nickname Devil Dogs for their ferocious fighting abilities. Thank you one and all who wear the Eagle, Globe and Anchor for your commitment and sacrifice. OORAH Devil Dogs and Semper Fi! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARINES!
FORGET-ME-NOT DAY reminds us to take care of our wounded warriors. Originally created in 1921, a need was recognized to care for those returning from WWI who needed medical care – short and long term. The forget-me-not flowers were sold as a way to raise funds. Today that organization that started this has become the Disabled American Veterans and does all it can to help our wounded vets. If you are interested in learning more, go to Disabled American Veterans.
