Did you know: During WWII, over 200 English words were substituted with the Navajo equivalent, but the Navajo language did not have words to described modern instruments of war. Because of this, tanks were called turtles, airplanes were called birds, bombers were called buzzards, grenades were called potatoes and battleships were called whales. To this day, Marines use some of the phrases that were passed down by the Navajo Code Talkers, such as a pen is called an ink stick, and running shoes are called go fasters.

Courage is not the absence of fear, but the ability to confront that fear and continue to push yourself.

Today in Marine Corps History:

01 JUN 1918
WWI's Battle of Belleau Wood begins where United States Marines would distinguish themselves again in fierce battle. Said one German private at the time, "We have Americans opposite us who are terribly reckless fellows." #DevilDogs

WE ARE MARINES

“Once a Marine, always a Marine” is familiar to us all. It is that feeling you get when you see a Marine Corps sticker on a car or a home proudly displaying the Marine Corps flag. All we need to do is knock and that Marine will be there for you. It is not just a tag line for a commercial. That flag is the embodiment of our soul. Despite our many years of service to different causes and in various times, we all have that one tangible thing in common: It is the knowledge that we have all earned the privilege to wear the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor; a symbol that will forever be seared into our hearts.

WHAT WE DO

Active, reserve, retired, and veteran Marines continue the faithful tradition of looking out for the Marines to their left and right. Providing mentorship, career counseling, Veteran Service Officer VA support, assisting with transitions, and providing opportunities for family. Founded by MajGen John Lejeune in 1923; for over 94 years we continue to stand proud as a veteran’s service organization.

This is what everyone missed by not being at the Dept quarterly meet.
Marines, We are still trying to get a headcount for those planning to attend the Quarterly meeting in Alamogordo this Saturday (July 17th) so we have plenty for a light lunch. We have heard from Farmington and the Dept Chaplain and they are attending. Just trying to get a good sense of how much to get. Please contact us so we can plan appropriately.
