HAPPY BIRTHDAY SIR! THANK YOU...and GOD BLESS YOU! (((((Semper Fi))))) (((((Sgt. Disciple))))) (((((All Marines))))) ***Salute!***
Freedom Is Not Free
I watched the flag pass by one day.
It fluttered in the breeze
A young Marine saluted it, and then
He stood at ease.
I looked at him in uniform
So young, so tall, so proud
With hair cut square and eyes alert
He'd stand out in any crowd.
I thought, how many men like him
Had fallen through the years?
How many died on foreign soil?
How many mothers' tears?
How many Pilots' planes shot down?
How many foxholes were soldiers' graves?
No, Freedom is not free.
I heard the sound of taps one night,
When everything was still.
I listened to the bugler play
And felt a sudden chill.
I wondered just how many times
That taps had meant "Amen"
When a flag had draped a coffin
of a brother or a friend.
I thought of all the children,
Of the mothers and the wives,
Of fathers, sons and husbands
With interrupted lives.
I thought about a graveyard
at the bottom of the sea
Of unmarked graves in Arlington.
No, Freedom isn't free!
A song for you:
Marine Corps Hymn
From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli,
We fight our country's battles in the air, on land and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom, and to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title of United States Marine.
Our flag's unfurled to every breeze from dawn to setting sun. We have fought in every clime and place, where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far off northern lands and in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job,The United States Marines.
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.
EDIT: Sgt. Disciple, Sir! Thank you, I'm honored! :)))

Actually I did. I was walking through a little mall and saw the recruiters office - opened the door and said "Happy Birthday". One marine shouted back "Semper Fi" and a hoo rah - but the kids across from them didn't know what was going on.Source(s): Retired US Navy - submariner.

Happy "birthday", Semper Fi. :) God bless men like you who risk their lives for this country. Even though our wonderful government sends out soldiers like the former you and people in the Navy and Air Force and the Army to be killed every day, I admire the courage those guys show. Perhaps if we got enough of their honesty and courage around this country and ESPECIALLY in Washington, D.C., America would truly be a land of freedom. God bless them all!

My favorite "Birthday Party" verse:
Nehemiah 8:10 "Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto him for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye grieved; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
Semper Fi, Marine.
