Ooh-Rah & Happy Birthday, Sir!! On this 238th birthday of our beloved Corps, you are still and forever will be a presence we remember as we celebrate. It is because of YOU, Sir, & our other brothers and sisters who have given their lives, ensuring that we will always be able to celebrate the Honor, Courage, and Commitment instilled into the heart of all of us. You will always be the epitome of what the Marine Corps stands for; a constant reminder that our signature on that dotted line-although written in ink-is sealed with our own blood. Today, Sir, I thank you for your guidance; your leadership; your sense of humor; your service; and most of all-your ultimate sacrifice. You will always be present in each and every aspect of the Marine Corps and those who have had the pleasure of serving with you or beside you, to include me-will NEVER forget that. You have impacted the lives of so many of our brothers and sisters. Your sacrifice was not in vain, Sir; and it will NEVER be taken for granted. I know you're guarding the Gates of Heaven with the same pride and confidence which you portrayed in life, as well. Thank you, Sir; For your service and your willingness to give your all. Happy Birthday, Sir, and Semper Fidelis!!!!
