    Doesn't seem like all that long ago they were celebrating their 200th birthday. I was aboard ship somewhere in the Pacific at the time. While we squids were served mystery meat and instant mashed potatoes the grunts from the MarDet were dining on steak & lobster!

    On a related note:
    A special "Semper Fi" to Mr. Jud Wagner of Smith County Kansas: the worlds oldest living Marine and Kansas' only surviving WWI veteran.

    Mr. Wagner is 107, joined the Corps in 1916 when he was 17 years old. According to one of the nurses at the long term care facility where he lives he often tells them "I'm a Marine. I fought for you guys."

    I don't know if I can speak for any other former Marines, but having members of the other branches of our armed forces acknowledge the Marine Corps birthday means a whole lot.

    Thank you.

    I guess late is better than never (I was in the woods all weekend applying my marksmanship skills on various Bambis). Anyways, Happy Birthday fellow Marines.
