This is definitely one thing I am jealous about with the Corps. Sure the Army teaches military history, ...

The Marine Corps is based upon tradition. Everything about the Corps from the founding, to the battle streamers, to the uniform and the Eagle, Globe and Anchor is steeped in tradition that each of us contributed to and share. That's what keeps the Corps going. Thanks for noticing.

Some say we live on our history, to which I reply "We live on, making history."

The Marines' Prayer
Almighty Father, whose command is over all and whose love never fails, make me aware of Thy presence and obedient to Thy will. Keep me true to my best self, guarding me against dishonesty in purpose in deed and helping me to live so that I can face my fellow Marines, my loved ones and Thee without shame or fear. Protect my family. Give me the will to do the work of a Marine and to accept my share of responsibilities with vigor and enthusiasm. Grant me the courage to be proficient in my daily performance. Keep me loyal and faithful to my superiors and to the duties my country and the Marine Corps have entrusted to me. Make me considerate of those committed to my leadership. Help me to wear my uniform with dignity, and let it remind me daily of the traditions which I must uphold. If I am inclined to doubt; steady my faith; if I am tempted, make me strong to resist; if I should miss the mark, give me courage to try again. Guide me with the light of truth and grant me wisdom by which I may understand the answer to my prayer. Amen.

Marine Corps history is continuously growing, and is a great thing. You are surrounded by it from the moment you put your feet on the yellow footprints, and it stays with you through the rest of your life, even while you are making it.

Long live the United States and success to the Marines.
21 years and 21 days, United States Marine Corps.
The line of hard men willing to rain violence on our enemies so you can sleep warmly and safely in your bed at night continues. That's what we do. Semper fi.

The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.
