Happy 238th Birthday to the USMC!

'Semper Fidelis', boys!

Semper Fidelis‘, boys! now, let’s get ready for the ceremony!

On November 10th, 2013, Marines stationed all over the world will celebrated the 238th Birthday of the Marine Corps. It couldn’t be different here in La Paz, Bolivia.

IMG_0956I’m honored to say that more than being members of the same mission, I’m grateful and proud to call the Marines here our friends. And my gratitude must be expressed as support. Support to our MSG.

I’m happy to know that each and every one of the young men working at Post One is there for us, despite being short-handed, despite the long hours, the apparently endless shift work… Their daily duties is to be ready. Ready before any of us would think of being… And tomorrow, when we all get in to begin our work day, they’ll be ready, with their usual ‘good morning’ from the ‘box’…

They’re more than a familiar voice behind the after-hours phone calls… and for the FS community out there, I’m sure you can all relate – they need our support as much as we need theirs…

I’m glad and honored to say, that more than sharing the same workplace, we share friendship… These young men have become my friends… Semper Fidelis, boys – Happy Birthday, Marine Corps! 🙂
