It all began at Tun Tavern:
The Establishment of the United States Marine Corps.
Evening dress (cool enough on your screen, but it transports you to a beautiful, bygone era to see these gorgeous uniforms on our proud, brave men and women in person!)
And at the bigger, on-base USMC Balls, the Band will play on!
The Marine Corps hymn - here
"All right, they're on our left, they're on our right, they're in front of us, they're behind us...they can't get away this time!"
Special Happy Birthday shout-out to our dear Cavey, his fellow Leatherneck Bloglodytes, and his House Sergeant Major, too!
