Happy birthday to you...

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday dear shock trooper devil dog blood sucking war machines,
Happy birthday to you.



(Historical note: When the second guy signed his "X" on the dotted line at Tun Tavern, the guy in line in front of him turned around and said "Things were different in the Old Corps." ;) )

Happy Birthday to the Marines. I'm glad we've got the Marines, and the other guys don't.

Bless you all.

Except Murtha.

To show the younger scouts it could be done, I slept outside the tent on a clear cold winter night.
In the after-action report, Scoutmaster, a Khe Sanh gunny, said "Comatus and me, see, we're from the old breed."

Well I hadn't expected that. Sometimes you surprise yourself: I blushed, and I don't blush. All of a sudden I couldn't see so good. I looked down and twisted by toe in the sand and managed to stammer, "Nobody was shooting at me." There's a special humility in being mistaken for a Marine.

Why does the Navy keep Marines aboard ship?
Cause sheep would be to obvious.
In all seriousness, happy birthday to the men and woman of the Marine Corps.

Ah, Jeff Jeff Jeff, never go out drinking without me.

The most civilized part of the "anonymous Intraw3bs" is that you can get through "seagoing bellhops" and "the Admiral's coffee" to "happy birthday" without picking yourself up off the floor.
