Veteran's Day: How Do We Expect Our Kids To Know...

...If We Don't Teach Them?

"I...acknowledge what I have come to feel about those who sacrifice some, or all, of their young lives to defend the rest of us.  They are our ordinary citizens who have forced themselves to extraordinary service.  They do not answer the call to arms lightly, but weigh it against the safety and comforts of life at home.  Yet they do answer.  They answer because when the call does come, and they then look into their hearts, they see the delicate flame of freedom begin to flicker." - Jim Proser


"In war, there are no unwounded soldiers." - Jose Narosky


"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf." - George Orwell


"Their story is known to all of you.  It is the story of the American man-at-arms.  My estimate of him was formed on the battlefield many, many years ago, and has never changed.  I regarded him then as I regard him now - as one of the world's noblest figures, not only as one of the finest military characters, but also as one of the most stainless.  His name and fame are the birthright of every American citizen.  In his youth and strength, his love and loyalty, he gave all that mortality can give.  He needs no eulogy from me or from any other man.  He has written his own history and written it in red on his enemy's breast.  But when I think of his patience under adversity, of his courage under fire, and of his modest victory, I am filled with an emotion of admiration I cannot put into words.  He belongs to history as furnishing one of the greatest examples of successful patriotism.  He belongs to posterity as the instructor of future generations in the principles of liberty and freedom.  He belongs to the present, to us, by his virtues and by his achievements." - General Douglas MacArthur


"This will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave." - Elmer Davis


"But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye." - Thomas Dunn English


Take A Moment To Thank A Veteran

When you see someone in a uniform,
Someone who serves us all,
Doing military duty,
Answering their country’s call,


Take a moment to thank them
For protecting what you hold dear;
Tell them you are proud of them;
Make it very clear.

Just tap them on the shoulder,
Give a smile, and say,
"Thanks for what you’re doing
To keep us safe in the USA!"

By Joanna Fuchs


Every day should be Veteran's Day in our heart, but at the very least we should take a few moments on November 11th to make note of those who have protected the freedoms we enjoy as Americans.  We need not do this because they are heroes - because they do not see themselves as such - we need to do this to acknowledge the sacrifices they have made for each of us...And please, don't forget those who are currently serving - nor those waiting for them at home.

Happy 239th Birthday U.S. Marine Corps

The Marines are one of the greatest fighting forces in the history of the world, and a major component in America's past, present and future arsenal of freedom...Global Reach, Global Power!




"The Marine Corps, not the Peace Corps, is the greatest force for world peace." - Dennis Prager

This date marked the first formal commemoration of the birthday of the Marine Corps as 10 November. On 21 October 1921, Maj Edwin McClellan, OIC of the Historical Section, HQMC, sent a memo to MajGen Commandant John A. Lejeune, suggesting that the original birthday of 10 November 1775 be declared a Marine Corps holiday to be celebrated throughout the Corps. Accordingly, on 1 Nov 1921, Gen Lejeune issued Marine Corps Order No. 47 summarizing the history, mission, and tradition of the Corps, and directed that it be read to every command each 10 November
-------------------------
MARINE CORPS ORDERS No. 47 (Series 1921) HEADQUARTERS U.S. MARINE CORPS

Washington, November 1, 1921 759. The following will be read to the command on the 10th of November, 1921, and hereafter on the 10th of November of every year. Should the order not be received by the 10th of November, 1921, it will be read upon receipt.

(1) On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name "Marine". In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.

(2) The record of our corps is one which will bear comparison with that of the most famous military organizations in the world's history. During 90 of the 146 years of its existence the Marine Corps has been in action against the Nation's foes. From the Battle of Trenton to the Argonne, Marines have won foremost honors in war, and is the long eras of tranquility at home, generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every corner of the seven seas, that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.

(3) In every battle and skirmish since the birth of our corps, Marines have acquitted themselves with the greatest distinction, winning new honors on each occasion until the term "Marine" has come to signify all that is highest in military efficiency and soldierly virtue.

(4) This high name of distinction and soldierly repute we who are Marines today have received from those who preceded us in the corps. With it we have also received from them the eternal spirit which has animated our corps from generation to generation and has been the distinguishing mark of the Marines in every age. So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal to every emergency in the future as they have been in the past, and the men of our Nation will regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served as "Soldiers of the Sea" since the founding of the Corps.
