    We had dinner at my son's girlfriend's parents' house last Thursday. Her dad, ("Gunner") mentioned his birthday is today. Apparently, he considers today his birthday - not the day he was born on! He said he'd be 245 today.

    Seriously, the birthday celebrations since 1921 have included a reading of Commandant John A. Lejeune's message "to all Marines throughout the globe."
    This link, with all due respect, contains his message on the occasion of the 244th Birthday of the USMC:

Semper Fi!
    I applaud your use of all the gender pronouns. 😁
