November 10 marks USMC’s 241ths birthday. Celebrate the reunion theme while watching the Marine’s YouTube video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOSuslaKKHY
241 is both a prime number and a lucky number (See: https://oeis.org/A031157 ).
This year may all Marines experience good luck and good health.
Hold each Marine prime in your thoughts and prayers.
In order to help celebrate the birthday of the United States Marine Corps, I decided to take a gander at the USMC’s blog site: http://www.marines.mil/ . It’s a fascinating read, and the pictures of our Marines working hard makes my workout seem very tame. For us civilians, you can learn about the culture and commitment of marines.

Happy birthday, USMC! Semper Fi.
