Happy Birthday Devil Dogs!

| November 10, 2021

On November 10, 2021, Marines across the globe will recognize and acknowledge 246 years of service to their country, the sacrifices made to defend democracy, and the Marine Corps’ enduring legacy as America’s premier fighting force.

The Marine Corps’ annual tradition celebrates the establishment of the organization on November 10, 1775, by the Second Continental Congress. Following their role in the American Revolution, the Marines were abolished following the Treaty of Paris in April 1783. Then, on July 11, 1798, Congress ordered the creation of the Marine Corps and directed that it be available for service under the Secretary of the Navy.

The birthday, also known as Marine Corps Day, was originally celebrated on July 11 from 1799 until 1921 when Major General Lejeune issued an order to formalize the tradition and establish the official day to honor the birthday of the Marine Corps. The ceremony traditionally includes a guest of honor, a reading of Gen. Lejeune’s birthday message and the current Commandant’s message, recognition of the oldest and youngest Marine present, and a cake cutting.

Happy birthday, Marines. Let there be many more.

A very happy birthday to Uncle Sam’s Misguided Children. A can bet a few boxes on crayons will meet the demise along with a whole bunch of Natty Ice.


Happy birthday! May the crayons be plentiful!


Along with pink bathrobes & fuzzy slippers.
And, oh yeah…….ceegars!

Happy Birthday Devil Dogs! OOHRAH!


Oh, someone has your edible crayon needs covered:


They taste better than real crayons.

Happy Birthday Marines. How come a Marine contingent arn’t stationed aboard the USS Constitution like the old days.

USMC Steve

There just are not enough Marines to do it anymore. Our numbers are down so that there are no Marines on ships at all anymore and none guarding Navy installations. All the 03’s are in the FMF.

By the way gang, all the services went bye bye after the revolution. The founding fathers didn’t want a standing military of any sort due to their distaste for doing anything the way Britain did it. Only the National Guard and the Coast Guard can claim unbroken continual service to America.


Happy Birthday 🎂 Marines.
May your windows be clean, clear, cold and plentiful.


Can’t wait to hoist a few with The Few, The Proud…tonite.
Happiest of B-days, Weirdos!


Veteran’s Day was moved back to 11 Nov from one of the Monday holidays so the Marines had a day to recover from their hangovers.


Happy birthday to the United States Marine Corps! Two of my favorite people are Jarheads, and I enjoy sending them a USMC birthday greeting each year.

To all the Marines out there, we civilians desperately need you to remain “semper fidelis”, because the current crop of Kongressklowns and other Brandonistas are sure as hell NOT faithful.

P.S. Let’s go Brandon!


“Brandonistas”?!?! YES!!!
Президент Brandonidium making all his 5-year Gosplan for no one, especially the Brandonetariat.

November Revolutions have consequences.


Brandonistas is officially added to my limited vocabulary, I wish I had thought of it. Semper Fidelis, Chu Lai 7th Marines.


Happy 246th Birthday USMC. On a sad note, I truly am shocked that https://twitter.com/Crayola is silent on this momentous day!


I recall guys crying at the Boston Army Base induction center
when the SGT read out loud a list of names and then said
“welcome to the US Marine Corps”

Happy Birthday to you guys. Don’t take no crap from nobody.


Happy Birthday, Marines!


Happy Birthday Marines. God bless and Godspeed.


Happy Birthday Devil Dogs. A Toast to your past Birthdays and a Prayer for many more! Don’t eat the candles on the Birthday Cake, those are NOT crayons.

Samuel Nicholas grins…and his Daddy drinks one with you!
