The only real party in town today...

Only two military organizations really know how to throw a party, yeah, the Naval Aviators had Tailhook, but the French Foreign Legion and the United States Marine Corps have picked their day to celebrate and they do it right. Somehow through movies and television probably you think that broadchested scruffy bearded twenty year olds are Marines... but this picture called to me, cause this is more like the Marines I knew - just kids, carrying too much, given too big a mission and only protected by the sure knowledge that they were Marines. My favorite almost quote from the Marines "Come on, you think you are going to live forever?" Happy Birthday, Marines.
