Happy Birthday Marines!
Today marks the 236th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. Most of you know I grew up right outside of Beaufort, SC. Beaufort is home to two Marine Corps bases, Parris Island and USMC Air Station Beaufort. I honor and respect all of our service men and women, but the Marines hold a special place in my heart. Many of my friends are from Marine families and several of them have gone into service themselves.
On the eve of Veteran's Day, I say thank you to all of our veterans for their service and sacrifices to keep our country free. I say thank you to those currently serving in our armed forces for their continued sacrifices for our freedom.
Land of the Free, Home of the Brave
