Happy Birthday Marines

US MarinesNovember 10, 1775 — The Continental congress commissioned Captain Samuel Nicholas to recruit two battalions of ‘Marines’ for maritime and land duty in the Continental Marines. Captain Nicholas is regarded as the first Commandant of the Marine Corps.

Today marks the 236th anniversary of the founding of the Corps. From that day to this the few and the proud have stood for our freedom and against those who would take it from us.

In battles fought in the Spanish-American War, in Europe, The Pacific, Korea, Vietnam, right up to the war on terror, the Marine Corps is rich with culture, history, and tradition.

Semper Fidelis distinguishes the Marine Corps bond from any other. It goes beyond teamwork – it is a brotherhood and lasts for life.

Latin for “always faithful,” Semper Fidelis became the Marine Corps motto in 1883. It guides Marines to remain faithful to the mission at hand, to each other, to the Corps and to country, no matter what.

Becoming a Marine is a transformation that cannot be undone, and Semper Fi reminds us of that. Once made, a Marine will forever live by the ethics and values of the Corps.

There is no such thing as an ex-Marine.

A Marine is defined by Honor, Courage, and Committment.

Marine Corps Ball Turning into Hot Ticket

Justin Timberlake is an A-List entertainer, a movie star and recently the push behind Mila Kunis to accept a date from Sgt. Moore of the US Marines. You could pretty much say he punked Mila into it. Nice going, dude!

Recently Timberlake and Kunis were guests on the Fox411 when the video “Ask out” from Sgt Moore was played for the duo. It’s very obvious that Justin got behind Mila and pushed her into it. She agreed to go. (However a recent report says that her production schedule in November could keep her from keeping her date with Sgt. Moore. She is trying to arrange a meeting with Sgt, Moore to discuss other options.)

Considering the pressure Justin Timberlake poured on his Friends With Benefits co-star, it will be interesting to see how Justin responds to this recent volley from the US Marines:

Corporal Kelsey De Santis is currently the only female serving at the Martial Arts Center for Excellence at Marine Corps Base Quantico. A “no” to this request could garner Justin Timberlake a serious ass-kicking. Now THAT would be entertainment!
