Happy 231st Birthday, USMC!
If I were anywhere near Quantico on or after November 13, 2006, I'd make time to go visit the new Marine Corps Museum. I guess I won't see it until next spring or summer. If you see it before I do, please tell me about it by leaving a comment or by emailing me. The Commandant put up a few pictures of it already, so we can have a preview:
Some books about Marines that I've enjoyed are these:
I have William Manchester's book, but I haven't read it yet. Maybe I will start it in honor of the Marine Corps birthday.
So tell a Marine "Happy Birthday!" tomorrow.
