Happy Birthday, Marines!
I just attended a Marine Corps Birthday Ball, which I do whenever I can (usually every year). There were several local citizens who attended to show their support by personally wishing the Marines a Happy Birthday. [It's the 232nd, after the resolution of the Continental Congress 10 NOV 1775.]
There's a lot of amazing dedication out there, especially among real Americans in uniform. There's a reason why Americans choose as their leaders those who start with the Oblige, and let the people decide about the Noblesse.
Hat tip to The Dread Pundit.
