HAPPY VETERANS DAY FROM THE 59 VETS PROJECT!

veterans-day-2016

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!
