TO ALL OUR VETERANS & MILITARY MEN AND WOMEN:
“On this day 241 years ago, the United States Marine Corps was founded in a Philadelphia tavern, upon request of the Continental Congress. In the years that have followed, the Marines have stayed powerful and constant – much like the liberty they fight to protect.” So today is the Marine Corps Birthday.
And tomorrow is Veterans Day.
It’s always like this every year. November 10, USMC Day; November 11, Veterans Day. However, it can be worrisome when these two days fall on a weekend. Why? Well, there’s a running joke among Marine Corps friends and families that when both holidays fall on a weekend is when the United States becomes most vulnerable to attack or invasion. Why? Because when the holidays fall on a weekend most the Marine Corps and half the rest of our military are too busy partying and celebrating to be of any use to anyone in a battle!
Thankfully, this year, both holidays don’t fall on a weekend and Marines generally don’t like to party too hearty on a Thursday. However, all of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT would really like to wish our Marine Corps, Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard veterans and active duty personnel a very HAPPY VETERANS DAY tomorrow.
Semper Fi from all of us to all of you!
