Today is the birthday of the United States Marine Corps.

So I send special DaveTown greetings to my favorite Marines:

Soos: My hero, my role model, my great friend.

Skylar: freshly graduated from Boot Camp in San Diego!

Jonathan Lee: I don’t know him personally, but I admire him nonetheless.

Also, pray for the repose of the souls of all those gallant Marines who have died in the defense of our country.

If you have HBO, be sure to check out Unknown Soldier this month. It’s the story of a young man’s quest to get to know his father, a Marine who died in Viet Nam. It’s a sublime piece of film making.
