United States Marine Corps traces its institutional roots to the Continental Marines of the American Revolutionary War. "Semper fidelis" signifies the dedication & loyalty that individual Marines have for "Corps & Country", even after leaving service. Marines frequently shorten the motto to "Semper Fi".
In horrible times of wars, you probably wonder what keeps soldiers from going crazy. Letters and calls from loved ones, you might say, right? But you know something that’s really effective? Little furry, cutesy-wutesy pets. They say that dogs make you live a happier and longer life, while cats keep your blood pressure down.
The flag raising at Iwo Jima was the defining image of the Pacific theater of World War 2. The American Marines and a Navy corpsman were snapped atop Mount Suribachi, hoisting their flag after wresting Iwo Jima from the Japanese.
The men and women of the US Military have now served under the most corrupt, anti-American administration in US history. Remember these men and women when you vote on Nov. 8, 2016. They served a man who was trying every day to kill off the country they fought to protect and defend while he intentionally violated the oath of office he took. Twice. They are the most courageous Americans alive today to keep signing up, serving and believing there is still something to save.
