Happy Birthday, USMC, respect to all those serving and veteran. Speaking of which, I got a call from a churchwoman who was worried about her son being deployed to an island near Japan. She felt bad about feeling so undone by the thing, "I guess I'm not a good Marine Mom! He's still my baby."

OK, it's not the Spartan approach, but more than understandable. I reassured her; thousands of Mothers are feeling exactly what you feel, you're not alone. But be strong, that helps your boy. Of course I spoke from experience, the Private's mom wasn't too pleased he'd emigrated to South Korea. 

Without delving into psychology and the  difference between the sexes, both women were and are proud of their sons. Good for them, they raised patriots who are serving their country. Again, respect, be strong. And I don't say that lightly.

While we're at it, it's also the anniversary of the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Here's the tune:

Congrats to the USMC, the military, and the Mothers of our soldiers.

God bless you all,

The winds of November turned gloomy. RIP to the captain and crew of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald.

As to the Marine Corps, we may have work close to home for them in the coming couple of months when the donkeys find that President Trump is still their president.

Happy Birthday Marines.

Last I heard a gang of three hull breaking waves called the 3 sisters is what took out the SS Edmund Fitzgerald. Sad time. Maybe those young folks should not have been on that ship.

LL, the donks aren't going to like it when they wake up and discover Trump's still their president. They'll like the USMC even less but I doubt the marines would be too worried about that.

What a tragedy, Kid.
