Semper Fi and Happy 244th Birthday to one and ALL Marines!! I won't be there, for a couple of reasons not the least of which is that I'm in Mazatlán at the moment; but I will toast to the Corps and to the Blood Stripe tomorrow 11/10/2019!![thumb]

I toasted the Corps' 244th Birthday in Mazatlán and told all of my old and new Mexican friends about our version of the Battle of Chapultepec and the Marine Blood Stripe. I told them why it commemorates the battle, (280 Marines killed and a bunch wounded!). I told them to look closely when the White House Marine guards stand at attention by the President and notice the red stripe on either side of the Marine's trousers; That commemorates Chapultepec in September of 1847!
