Today is the official birthday of the United States Marine Corps. We are now 244 years old and still one of the world’s elite fighting forces. My four years in the Marine Corps provided the foundation for all the success I have achieved. I am proud the claim the title of Marine. and will until I die.
Not all 19 year olds are created equal. When I was 19 I didn’t have a gun. I had a rifle. And my life and the lives of all my fellow Marines around me depended on it. But then Mt Bloomberg didn’t go to Viet Nam and never faced someone whose sole purpose in life was to end yours.
