Today is the Marine Corps' 235th Birthday. Happy Birthday, Devil Dogs!
Semper Fi Marines!
One of my favorite Marine-related memories is of those recruitment ads around 1990-1991 with medieval knights, dragons, and chess boards. They're still around on Youtube. I've read that they inspired a lot of people to join up.
Yes, those were awesome. The one where the Marine pulls the sword from the stone and then transforms into a Marine Officer with Dress Blues and the sword transforms into the Mameluke Sword (US Marines' Officers' Sword).
One of the coolest things when I went to the Sergeant's Course way back when was learning sword drill with the NCO sword. I wish I could have purchased my own. I never had a set of Dress Blues, either. *sigh*
