Happy Birthday to Our Beloved Marine Corps

If you worked at the embassy in Baghdad, and the only thing preventing you from being turned into a shrapnel sandwich by whichever thugs wanted to blow you up that day was a bunch of well-trained Marines, you'd be wishing them happy birthday too. Semper Fi!

Bonus: Gateway Pundit has a neat story about Sgt. Tyson Two Two being honored by his tribe (Northern Cheyenne) after coming back from Iraq. Kind of reminds you of the legendary Ira Hayes, who is seen in the above picture at Iwo Jima.
