Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

An Old Marine, Well Sorta, Celebrates the 238th Birthday
Today, Movember 10th, 238 years ago, the USMC was established. Yesterday, I went to the Tom Grosvenor Memorial Marine Corps Breakfast with a whole big roomful of jarheads at the Fox Lake (Ill.) American Legion. //// I was a Marine for six short weeks in OCS at Quantico, Virginia, as they needed second lieutenants but then the Vietnam War ended so they didn't need me. //// Regardless, I was Marinized. //// I'll be writing about it next week in my Wortld War II blog. //// Happy Birthday, USMC. --RoadDog
