I am sharing a message from one of my favorite Marines (and I know I’m not supposed to have favorites … but). He is now in the private sector and currently overseas working with a private contractor.
Because he is not in the U.S., it makes his message even more powerful to his fellow Marines and the general public:
I wish all my fellow Veterans a great and safe Veterans Day and may you all take a few minutes to reflect on they days of past and really look at what you have and how if not for those that came before, we may not have those things today.
Every day I see Americans take the freedom they have for granted.
All I ask is for you to take a minute or two to reflect on sacrifices made by those who answer the call to serve. I’ll stand and fight with my fellow warriors so my family, friends, and our way of life will never cease to exist.
Fly those Flags everyday and paint our country in those beautiful colors.
SEMPER FI devil dogs happy belated birthday and to my brothers and sisters in other branches push on and never give up.
I too owe a belated 239th Happy Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps.
