Letter: Happy birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps

To the Editor:

Over the past 237 years there have been a select few who have been called upon to serve our great nation.

They have endured extreme heat and bitter cold. They have sacrificed their time, talent, bodies and lives to protect us from the worst evils this world has to offer. These men and women give these things freely without expectations of compensation. They have chosen to heed the call and take the challenge. These men and women have earned a title that only the most honorable, the most courageous and the most committed individuals dream to wear.

They are United States Marines.

Nov. 10 was the birthday of the Marine Corps.

Happy Birthday to all who have earned the title Marine.

Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps.
