Happy 240th Birthday to the USMC

Twelve years ago, I rocked the hottest dress I have ever bought. Red glitter, spaghetti straps (they were in), and an asymetrical hemline. My shoes were red glitter heels and I literally left a trail of sparkle everywhere I went.


Twelve years ago, I attended my first United States Marne Corps Birthday Ball. The oldest and youngest Marines were honored, coutnries were America had victored were proclaimed {Justin had to say “Beirut,” which has somehow become an iside joke} and a beautifully decorated cake was cut.

To all who wear the most stunning uniform of the armed forces, to all who proudly boast the title of Marine, I say thank you, and happy birthday.
