The Marines have defending this great Nation for 239 years. Today is the Marine Corps Birthday; Happy Birthday Marines. Tomorrow we will celebrate Veterans Day. All of my Army, Navy, Air force, Coast Guards, and Marine Brothers and Sisters have defended our nation in time of war and peace. A lot of us have died, many of us are handicapped. We do this to keep our nation free. Because of us you have the right for speech, religion, press, education, vote, and so many more freedoms that we as Americans take for granted. When you see a Veteran the most respected thing you can do is say: Thank you! May God Bless the United States of America.
