Quote of the Week

Quote of the Week

“My definition, the definition that I’ve always believed in, is that Esprit de Corps means love for one’s own military legion – in my case, the United States Marine Corps. It means more than self-preservation, religion, or patriotism. I’ve also learned that this loyalty to one’s corps travels both ways: up and down.”
-Chesty Puller

    Great story- Dad is a Marine and we live near Paris Island- Dad was wounded near Chosin on November 28, 1950, Dog company I think, Royal British Comandos helped get him help, He spoke of Chesty Puller often.

    You refuse to allow the use of a Post Office Box in my address. Guess what my last 2 orders where delivered, by Fedex to the postal service for delivery to my Post Office Box. I have to trick the delvery address that is in your system and put Apt 278 instead of POB other wise the order may be returned.

    My brother and I joined the Marine Corps reserves while still in high school. Great learning experience that has stayed with us for over 60 years. Doing family research I found that two family cousins served in the Marines during WW II. One, a Lt., lost his life on Iwo Jima. The other was wounded on Tarawa.

    I was told that when I was in 2d MTBN in 1973, as my wife was scheduled for surgery the next day. I never forgot that as I dealt with my Marines during my next 17 years.
