On behalf of the entire ANSO membership, we wish a happy 245th birthday to all our Marine Corps brothers and sisters.

Devil dogs and leathernecks are two of the names used to describe these fierce defenders of liberty.
World War I, At the Battle of Belleau Wood, Sergeant Daniel Joseph Daly, USMC, led a legendary charge against the German line, rallied his Marines by yelling “Come On, You Sons of Bitches, Do You Want to Live Forever?”
Unless you are on the wrong side of the charge, you have got to love that!
