Much has been said both by, and about, the United States Marines.
On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name “Marine”. In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.
I’m not one of those guys that thinks that military service ought to be a requirement for becoming President, but Ash Carter might have convinced me that it should be a requirement for SecDef.
Why do “Soft Military Targets” exist in the United States of America? Our military men and women are trained to protect us all – they should also be able to protect themselves.
