Today, the Marine Corps turns two hundred and forty four today. The Marine Corps has been one of the greatest accomplishments and moments in my personal history.
The sacrifice of these heroes should never be forgotten. It is because of their sacrifice and belief in the character of this nation that we enjoy our freedoms. The freedom of speech, religion, and sex. The right to keep and bare arms. Checks and balances of government powers. The freedom of the individual. Their sacrifice has preserved those freedoms in this wonderful nation.
