    Happy Birthday to all the Marines out there, both active duty, stateside and retired. Thank you all for your service.
    To those of you reading this from downrange, stay safe and come home standing tall.

    lol, it's alright, just had to point it out! The Old Guard does the Tomb of the Unknowns and the burials at Arlington. I've never been there in person yet, only seen the guard changes on Youtube. Hoping to change that this Spring.
