In celebration of the United States Marine Corps.


Happy Birthday,Marines!


Two old warhorses, Brigadier General Thomas V. Draude and Colonel H.C. “Barney” Barnum, Jr. (Medal of Honor, VN) gave voice to what it means to be a United States Marine.

Draude:
“Marine will be part of your biography, your resume, your obituary…” said Draude, who noted that the War on Terror “has a place for all of us” and a Marine’s “ability to react, deploy quickly, be in a constant state of readiness…to adapt and adjust” sets them apart.

“Marines never give up on the mission nor do they give up on their people,” said Draude. “One of our hallmarks is, you never leave a dead or wounded Marine behind…it truly is that band of brothers that is so special.”

“The proudest day of my life was the day I was sworn in as a Marine,” he said. It seems much the same for many.
Barnum:
“Marines can always count on the Marine on their left and on their right and the one in front of them and the one behind them so they train that way and when they have to execute a mission, they can rely on that Marine team.”

“Once a Marine always a Marine,” he said. “You earn the title…you join the Army you join the Air Force, you join the Navy — but you earn the title of a United States Marine.”
