    Today is the 225th birthday of our Corps, and I would like to say Happy Birthday to all of my fellow Marines. For 225 years, we have been there when the nation needed us to do whatever it was that needed to be done, and we will continue to be here, ready to do what needs to be done. Always remember the Marines who have gone before us, whose sacrifices have allowed us to live in this great land of ours. Remember the Marines of the present, who sacrifice so much to ensure the security of our home. Encourage the Marines of the future, because they ARE the future of our Corps.

    Happy Birthday, Marines. Semper Fidelis.

    Ah...excuse me. It is my underestanding that there are no ex-Marines...just former Marines. Once a Marine always a Marine. Happy Birthday to all...Semper Fi

    Uhhhhh.....I didn't go to the ball, but I did celebrate our birthday like a true Marine. Loud, boysterous, and drunk at the barracks! Miramar always has good barracks parties for those of us who don't go to the birthday balls.
    Oh, and Eagle, the way I look at it, there are ex-Marines. Lee Harvey Oswald, was an ex-Marine. That dork in the belltower with the rifle at the Texas college in the 60's, he was an ex-Marine. That is an ex-Marine. Anyone who serves and then gets out honorably (or close to it, hey, we are Marines after all) is a former Marine.

    That "dork" in the bell tower had a brain tumor. So i still consider him a Marine, even though it was a tragic incident. I believe Oswald was Honorable Discharged, so that still makes him a Marine. I'm not sure that i believe discharge status is even an indicator of wether one is a Marine. Remember The title Marine is something that is earned and cannot be easliy be taken away. Anyway... Happy (belated) Birthday. Semper Fi. Erik
