Happy Birthday, Jarheads

Those of us from other services may josh about their nicknames — jarheads, devil dogs, leathernecks — but when you hear the expression esprit de corps, you can almost be sure they’re talking about the Marine Corps, which celebrates its 235th birthday today.

If I had it to do all over again, I’d probably still enlist in the US Army… but I would certainly give the USMC more than a cursory glance.

Many happy returns of the day, Marines.
