Happy Birthday Marines

Recommended Posts

Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat.

RAdm. "Jay" R. Stark, USN; 10 November 1995



There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.

Gen. William Thornson, U.S. Army



The wonderful love of a beautiful maid,

The love of a staunch true man,

The love of a baby, unafraid,

Have existed since time began.


But the greatest of loves, The quintessence of loves.

even greater than that of a mother,

Is the tender, passionate, infinite love,

of one drunken Marine for another.

"Semper Fidelis"


General Louis H. Wilson

Commandant of the Marine Corps

Toast given at 203rd Marine Corps Birthday Ball

Camp Lejueune, N.C. 1978
