    Sorry I didn't get around to this earlier.

    For any brother/sister Marines on the board, Happy 235th Birthday.

    My 1st Birthday Balls were rather epic; I attended four in one evening back in the fall of 1974, when the USMC was 199 years young, as a member of the Drum and Bugle Corps of MATSG-90 while stationed at NAS Memphis.

    Photo from that era:


    That pic was taken a bit later, but most of the players were the same.

    We had a great time, and our OIC/NCOIC's loved us.

    Hope that my brothers and sisters had a day to remember...

    Happy Birthday!

    Always love the Dress Blues, by far the best of any unit in the world!
