Once a Marine, Always a Marine

“There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines:  Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.”  – Gen. William Thornson, U.S. Army

Sunday, November 10 is the 238th birthday of the United States Marine Corps and it is a fitting time to reflect on the glories, the illustrious history, and the heralded reputation of the Corps. It is also an important reminder of the very real sacrifices generations of brave Marines have endured for this nations freedom.

The Lint Center would like to offer its most sincere thanks and pay the appropriate homage to all Marines and for the everlasting brotherhood the Corps remains – Semper Fidelis!

“You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth–and the amusing thing about it is that they are.” – Father Kevin Keaney, 1st MarDiv Chaplain, Korean War
