Happy birthday to US Marine Corps

To the Journal editor:

The United States Marine Corps will be celebrating its 245th birthday on Nov. 10.

The U.S. Marine Corps birthday celebrates the history and the memory of those who served before and unites the bond that all generations of Marines have.

It is a celebration of the deepest respect for the Marine Corps traditions and recognition of the heritage that distinguishes the Corps of Marines.

Sadly, most celebrations happening on Nov. 10 locally have been cancelled. But always remember, once a marine, always a marine

And if there is a gathering of two Marines it is always a celebration.

Semper Fidelis.
