  • Marines 230th Birthday/Veterans Day

    Happy Birthday to my fellow resident Marines, and a hearty handshake and thank you on Veteran's Day to all on this board who have served this great country.

    Semper Fidelis.

          That's so cool. "Chesty" Puller, who I believe won four Navy Crosses and "Manila" John Basilone, MoH winner at Guadalcanal and one of the Marine Corps all-time greats.

          A little story on Basilone. After winning the MoH, he could have sat out the rest of the war doing Bond tours, recruiting drives and mingling with the stars, but that wasn't him, so he wrangled his way back into active duty and served again, unfortunately getting killed at Iwo Jima, another legendary Marines Corp battle.

          Before he died, he did more acts of bravery and was awarded a posthumus Navy Cross. A true warrior to the end.

          I think the main drag at Camp Pendleton is named for him.
