“The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!” - Eleanor Roosevelt
Hahaha Harms Way, I knew some one would call me out on that. And as for the beverage of choice is anything that contains alcohol.
First off, Happy Birthday to the USMC. Had the privilege to serve with many Marines in my time. One of my closest friends growing up was a Marine. Cpl. William I. Salazar. You're forever in our thoughts brother. May the lord bless and keep you. Fair winds and following seas.

..Thanks to all the vets out there for saving our asses!
That actually is a pretty good story.
Semper Fi Mac! Happy Birthday to all those past and present!
Happy Veterans day to all the others that served!
Some say freedom is free,
but I tend to disagree.
Some say freedom is won,
through the barrel of a gun.
My buddies gave thier lives,
so that you could have your rights.
On the night my buddies left,
the air was cold, the ground was wet.
They put them on a silver jet.
It was a night I won't forget.
They say that freedom is free
But I tend to disagree!
