Marine Corps- Happy Birthday!

Dear Fellow Journalers,

Today,  Marine Corps military families celebrate the 241st    anniversary of the founding of the Marine Corps, and it just so happens my husband and I also celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary. I found the following on a plaque and wanted to share it with you:



I’ll reply with what I’ve done.
Those things others would not do, I did;
Those rivers others would not swim, I swam;
Those hills others would not climb, I conquered;
Those bridges others would not cross, I crossed;
I have celebrated. I have mourned.
I have smiled and I have frowned.
I have seen death and felt its warm breath.
It did not faze me, for I was different.
I was a warrior.
You ask me what I was?
It was my destiny. Until my last breath.
To be a United States Marine.
And my spirit shall live forever.
