God bless the Marine Corps!
In honor of their founding, the USMC engages in government-sponsored alcoholism annually on this date.
This would be about as meaningful as Camerone Day to me, normally, but here in Ramadi we fall under I MEF (Fwd) and hence are permitted to participate in the Marne Corps Birthday festivities.
Or, in concrete terms, I got to have two beers, and I got there early enough to get two Heinekens (that being the only non-US beer option).
Woot. Here's to the USMC, and may they, in their next 231 years, actually find a few good men.
