Happy Birthday #245

"The Marines I have seen around the world
have the leanest bodies, the filthiest minds,
the highest morale, and the lowest morals of
any group of animals I have ever seen.
Thank God for the United States Marine Corps."
- Eleanor Roosevelt




Miss Virginia Mayo ~ Hugh's date...


Worth a view...

.... 3rd verse ~ Marine's Hymn...

"Here's health to you and to our Corps
Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life
And never lost our nerve;
If the Army and the Navy
Ever look on Heaven's scenes;
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines."
