  • FYI USMC Birthday

    For those of who have served in the USMC and those interested in Marine Corps culture .
    The Birthday of my beloved Corps is 10 November 1775. The Marine Corps was formed in Tunnes Tavern Philladelphia...yeah I know , formed in a bar...figures right? Well, the tavern no longer exists, however, every year outside Cookie's Tavern in Philly is a USMC Block party. Marines young and old and the curious gather here to celebrate our venerated history. One 20 some odd dollar fee gets you a t-shirt, a mug a calendar and all the beer and chow you can handle. This thing is pretty huge. A good place for Marines to clebrate the ocassion and a good place for the curious to learn about Marines...I highly recomend it. The only reason I bring it up is become I am putting in for my leave days for it this week.

        That would be a good party to go to. Bet the Philly police hate it. Bunch of drunk Jarheads running around. Not that Marines ever get drunk and thrown in Tijuana jail... er.. ya. Semper Fi!

              My Dad, another Marine, used to have this poster which displayed a suit of armor a sword and a shield. On the shield was the EGA...the caption above the equipment read "Unless you 782 Gear looked like this...Don't tell me about the Old Corps."
