"Land of the free ... because of the brave!"

We have staked the whole future of American civilization, not upon the power of government, far from it. We’ve staked the future of all our political institutions upon our capacity…to sustain ourselves according to the Ten Commandments of God.”

[1778 to the General Assembly of the State of Virginia] President James Madison made a major contribution to the ratification of the Constitution by writing, with Alexander Hamilton and John Jay, the Federalist essays. In later years, he was referred to as the "Father of the Constitution,"  

 "Some people live an entire life time and wonder if they every made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem." 

 
Ronald Reagan,
President of the United States Of America

Rec'd the hat today...it's the best.  The bonus sticker was a real nice touch.  I really like that you boxed the hat for shipping; I have rec'd flattened ones from others...I've learned my lesson and I'll be back to shop with you again.   I have left you positive feed back and would appreciate the same.

MARINES' HYMN
 
From the halls of Montezuma, to the shores of Tripoli,
We fight our country's battles in the air, on land and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom, and to keep our honor clean;
We are proud to claim the title of United States Marine.

Our Flag's unfurled to every breeze from dawn to setting sun.
We have fought in every clime and place, where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far off northern lands and in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job, the United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps, which we are proud to serve.
In many a strife we've fought for life and never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy ever look on heaven's scenes,
they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines.


A LETTER FROM BOOT CAMP....

 
Dear Ma and Pa,

I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled.



I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m. but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing.

We all have to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water & no out house!
 
Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, fruit,etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food. Tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food plus yours holds you until noon when you get fed again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much.

We go on "route marches," which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A "route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

The country is nice but awful flat. The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none.



This next one will kill Walt and Elmer with laughter... I keep getting medals for shooting & I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk's head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.

Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake. I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6" and 130 pounds and he's 6'8" and near 300 pounds dry.


Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.

Your loving daughter, Stephanie Marie

Cemetery Escort Duty

WARNING....DO NOT READ.....YOUR MONITOR WILL TEAR UP!

I just wanted to get the day over with and go down to Smokey's. Sneaking a look at my watch, I saw the time, 1655. Five minutes to go before the cemetery gates are closed for the day. Full dress was hot in the August sun.  Oklahoma summertime was as bad
as ever--the heat and humidity at the same level--both too high. 

I saw the car pull into the drive, '69 or '70 model Cadillac Deville, looked factory-new. It pulled into the parking lot at a snail's pace. An old woman got out so slow I thought she was paralyzed; she had a cane and a sheaf of flowers--about four or five bunches as best I could tell. 

I couldn't help myself. The thought came unwanted, and left a slightly bitter taste: 'She's going to spend an hour, and for this old Marine, my hip hurts like hell and I'm ready to get out of here right now!' But for this day, my duty was to assist anyone coming in. 

Kevin would lock the 'In' gate and if I could hurry the old biddy along, we might make it to Smokey's in time. 


I broke post attention. My hip made gritty noises when I took the first step
and the pain went up a notch.  I must have made a real military sight: middle-aged man with a small pot gut and half a limp, in Marine full-dress uniform, which had lost its razor crease about thirty minutes after I began the watch at the cemetery. 

I stopped in front of her, halfway up the walk. She looked up at me with an old woman's squint. 

'Ma'am,may I assist you in any way?'

She took long enough to answer. 

'Yes, son. Can you carry these flowers? I seem to be moving a tad slow these days.'

'My pleasure, ma'am.'
Well, it wasn't too much of a lie. 

She looked again. 'Marine, where were you stationed?

Vietnam, ma'am. Ground-pounder. '69 to '71.

She looked at me closer. 'Wounded in action, I see. Well done, Marine. I'll be as quick as I can.

I lied a little bigger: 'No hurry, ma'am.' 

She smiled and winked at me. 'Son, I'm 85-years-old and I can tell a lie from a long way off. Let's get this done. Might be the last time I can do this. My name's Joanne Wieserman, and I've a few Marines I'd like to see one more time.

'Yes, ma 'am. At your service.


She headed for the World War I section, stopping at a stone. She picked one of the flowers out of my arm and laid it on top of the stone. She murmured something I couldn't quite make out. The name on the marble was Donald S. Davidson, USMC: France 1918

She turned away and made a straight line for the World
War II
section, stopping at one stone. I saw a tear slowly tracking
its way down her cheek. She put a bunch on a stone; the name was 
Stephen X.Davidson, USMC, 1943



She went up the row a ways and laid another bunch on a stone, Stanley
J. Wieserman, USMC, 1944


She paused for a second. 'Two more, son, and we'll be done

I almost didn't say anything, but, 'Yes, ma'am. Take your time.' 

She looked confused. 'Where's the Vietnam section, son? I seem to have lost my way.


I pointed with my chin. 'That way, ma'am.' 

'Oh!' she chuckled quietly. 'Son, me and old age ain't too friendly.

She headed down the walk I'd pointed at. She stopped at a couple of stones before she found the ones she wanted. She placed a bunch on Larry Wieserman, USMC, 1968,
and the last on 
Darrel Wieserman, USMC, 1970.
She stood there and murmured a few words I still couldn't make out. 

'OK, son, I'm finished. Get me back to my car and you can go home.

Yes, ma'am. If I may ask, were those your kinfolk?

She paused. 'Yes, Donald Davidson
was my father, 
Stephen
was my uncle, 
Stanley
was my husband, 
Larry
and 
Darrel
were our sons. All killed in action, all Marines.



She stopped. Whether she had finished, or couldn't finish, I don't know. She made her way to her car, slowly and painfully. 


I waited for a polite distance to come between us and then double-timed it over to Kevin, waiting by the car. 

'Get to the 'Out' gate quick. I have something I've got to do.

Kevin started to say something, but saw the look I gave him. He broke the rules to get us there down the service road. We beat her. She hadn't made it around the rotunda yet.


'Kevin, stand at attention next to the gatepost. Follow my lead.'
I humped it across the drive to the other post. 


When the Cadillac came puttering around from the hedges and began the short straight traverse to the gate, I called in my best Gunny's voice: 'TehenHut! Present Haaaarms!'





I have to hand it to Kevin; he never blinked an eye--full dress uniform standing at attention
and a salute that would make his DI proud.



She drove through that gate with two old worn-out Marines giving her a send-off she deserved, for service rendered to her country, and for knowing duty, honor and sacrifice. 

I am not sure, but I think I saw a salute returned from that Cadillac.





Instead of 'The End,'...just think of 'Taps.


As a final thought on my part, let me share a favorite prayer: 'Lord,
keep our servicemen and women safe, whether they serve at home or overseas.
Hold them in your loving hands and protect them as they protect us.

Let's all keep those currently serving and those who have gone before in our thoughts. They are the reason for the many freedoms we enjoy. 

'In God We Trust.' 

Sorry about your monitor; it made mine blurry too! 

"If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under!"
                                                                                                                     President Reagan

Marine Girlfriend Handbook

By: bgwynn94
Written on March 19th, 2012



1. Don't count on anything!


2. Don't listen to ANYONE on the outside. All you will get is negative remarks, which will make things harder for you to deal with.

3. When he becomes stubborn and a royal pain in the butt, just remind yourself he's probably had a bad day, and being away from you is hard on him too. So just let him rant and don’t take it personal.

4. When you’re down, treat yourself.

5. Learn how to listen if you don’t know how! He will need you, you will be the one he comes to when he needs to complain, but don’t complain back...that is what USMC Girlfriends are for! This is a hard time for our men and they NEED us much more than they think they do!

6. Love your Marine, be truthful, and reassure him, especially if he is deployed he'll have someone to come back to!

7. He will try to pull away at some point. Whether directly telling you to move on, not wait for him or just becoming distant. It's a way they try of dealing, stick with him cause he really does want (and need) you there.

8. When he is away for a long time, or even just a couple hours away, write a lot of letters! Communication is key to a relationship.

9. Some of his friends will probably be morons - expect this.

10. You aren’t the only woman in his life (his mom misses and loves him too!) so make sure she is updated on what is going on with him.

11. He needs to feel important so don't hold back on the compliments - remind him how proud you are of what he does. Tell him how attractive you think he is when wearing his desert cami's, dress blues ect.

12. Chances are they won't call when they say they will (that especially applies for deployed!).

13. Don't buy that nonrefundable airplane ticket too early.

14. When eating with a Marine you either finish your "chow" in 15 minutes or less or be stared at until you are finished.

15. Never take one single minute with them for granted. Live each day with them like it’s the last one you'll have for a while, because with the Marine Corps, it just might be!

16. Take lots of pictures, so you can remember what each other looks like!

17. Don't even TRY to compare your Marine to ordinary men. You can no longer complain about broken plans, that phone call you were supposed to get but didn't, missed birthdays and anniversaries, his snoring (hey, at least he's sleeping BESIDE you), spending more time with "the boys" than you, etc… he is busy GET OVER IT!

18. Always look on the bright side of things. How many of your girlfriends get their first encounter, first date, first kiss from their men over and over again?

19. Gotta be able to keep up with your man. Stay in shape (we give our Marines a whole new meaning of PT) :)

20. Even if he says he will, he probably won't. Maybe really means probably not and yes means maybe.

21. Being a Marine's girlfriend is the toughest job in the corps. You have to deal with stress similar to the wives, without the promise of forever or the benefits and support they get.

22. We find ourselves using military lingo. "I'm gonna go get my room squared away", "It's chow time", or using military time, people are going to think you are crazy… ignore them. :)

23. Patience is the biggest key to making the relationship work...you have to wait a lot but in the end, waiting is what made it all worthwhile.
