237!

Happy 237th Birthday, Marines! 
Thank You for the sacrifices you make daily/made daily to make the Corps what it is today. 
Thank You for defending the Constitution against all enemies foreign and DOMESTIC. 
(and also, the Ball is tonight! I still haven't picked out which dress or done anything to get ready!)

The Marines' Hymn
From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli,
We fight our country's battles in the air, on land and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom, and to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title of United States Marine.
Our Flag's unfurled to every breeze from dawn to setting sun.
We have fought in every clime and place, where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far off northern lands and in sunny tropic scenes, 
You will find us always on the job, the United States Marines.
Here's health to you and to our Corps, which we are proud to serve.
In many a strife we've fought for life and never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy ever look on heaven's scenes,
they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines.


Also, to celebrate Veteran's Day a little early, stop by Facebook and find
 Shutterfly's new Thank You cards. They're giving these away to the Troops (for free) and need some personalizations.
