United States Marine Corps 234th Birthday

Today is the 234st Birthday of the United States Marine Corps.
If you’ve read my blog for awhile, you would know that I met Angry Husband while he was in the Marine Corps. I was just an eighteen year old girl, on a night out with my wild sorority sisters. Who would have thought, fifteen years later, we are still putting up with each other.

I endured two six-month deployments while he was on Active Duty. We were only able to attend one Marine Corps Birthday Ball. I was trying to find the pictures from that, but it’s a no-go. Ever other year, he was deployed during the Annual Birthday Celebration.

To the Marines, Past and Present-HAPPY 234TH!

Thanks for your service, Angry Husband. :) Not sure if I've said that before. Yeah, I love the Marine Corps. I'm shameless really. I missed going to a ball this year. But had fun hearing about my ex boyfriend's birthday experience over in Iraq via email today!Very thankful for Marines & their families. Semper Fi!

Happy Birthday Marine Corps. I have the utmost respect for military families, wives in particular. I think they're the unsung heroes of the whole bit.
