Congratulations to the graduates of Corporals Course 1-21!

Today, Marines at the Barracks graduated from Corporals Course to further their professional military education. Our guest speaker, Gunnery Sgt. Terry Hall, challenged the Marines to walk the walk, look out for their Marines and set the example for others to follow. This course is a key stepping stone that helps young leaders grow professionally and personally — reinforcing and reinvigorating the leadership characteristics and traits and that makeup all Marines.

#BringTheRain

Wednesday, Marines with Company B spent the day training with artillery and mortar Marines at The Basic School, Marine Corps Base Quantico, Virginia. This training gave them the opportunity to learn the different elements and steps that encompass a fire mission. As riflemen these Marines must keep their infantry tactics and knowledge finely tuned.

Who can tell me the history of this version of the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor at the 8th & I barracks?
Niels "Nationals Man" Pemberton is horrified by the horrendous events of 1-6-2021. I am also very angry with the people who did this obscenity and the people who egged it all on. I'm also upset at those who voted against the will of the people. The whole thing is very disturbing and I want to see everyone who participated, egged on, or approved of these horrible events prosecuted to the full extent of the law. This is not the America that I know from my 12th grade government class. Something is wrong in America. When I was a small kid I lived @ 142 D Street SE near the Capital--the People's House from 12-62 to 12-69. I never dreamed that people would think of attacking the US Capital. ( Then there was United Airlines flight # 93 on 9-11-01....)
The events of 1-6-2021 have HORRIFIED Mr. Niels "Nationals Man" Pemberton. who was born in Washington DC and is a patriot who loves America, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution and the rule of law. The storming of the Capital is un-American and evil. The people who did this atrocity are deluded fools. We want the people who did this be found, charged and punished to the full force of the law. I know the majority of Americans and ALL Marines @ MBW agree with me. You may be interested to know that on Christmas AM I went to Marine Barracks Washington and I went to all the guard posts wishing the Marines on duty a merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. It was the way I celebrated Christmas. not being able to see family due to COVID restrictions. Because of that I wanted to do something memorable to me and to bring some happiness to people who really deserve it. I've celebrated Christmas in the USA, in Denmark in 1969, 1973 and in an African village in Togo West Africa in 1982. This is the first time I've spent Christmas with US Marines. Sincerely, Mr. Niels W. Pemberton. Eagle Scout, World Traveler, and Nationals Wonk. [email protected].
When do you normally announce the schedule for the Sunset Parade?
I was stationed at 8th & I after my 1st of 3 tours Vietnam 1969 in B barracks. My assignment main gate Navy yard. Rex C McBee Sgt USMC 67-73 .
Merry Christmas and happy new year, thank you guys for your unselfish sacrifice and dedication !! you are greatly appreciated you make 🇺🇸 USA OF AMERICA PROUD. BTW On Christmas Day, I, Mr. Niels "Nationals Man" Pemberton went from Reston VA to Marine Barracks Washington. He arrived in the vicinity @ around 10AM. He went to every guard post and wished the marines standing guard duty a very merry Christmas. This was because he could not visit family in North Carolina, let alone his mother's family in Denmark for Christmas due to the COVID-19 pandemic. So he had to come to Marine Barracks Washington instead. This is not the only time that I've observed Christmas in a special way. In December 1982 I was in Togo West Africa......Respectfully sent by Mr. Niels W. Pemberton. Yes, I'm on Facebook. Leave a message. Thank you.
" I am sure I have always thought of Christmas-time, when it has come round—apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that—as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys." Charles Dickens. Mr. Niels "Nationals Man" Pemberton wishes ALL @ Marine Barracks Washington a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Merry Christmas My Friend. T’was the night before Christmas, he lived all alone, In a one-bedroom house made of plaster & stone. I had come down the chimney, with Nationals tickets & Nationals clothes to give and to see just who in this home did live As I looked all about, a strange sight I did see, no tinsel, no presents, not even a tree. No stocking by the fire, just boots filled with dirt, mud and sand. On the wall hung pictures of far distant lands. A;'stan Iraq & Montenegro With medals and badges, awards of all kind, a sobering thought soon came to my mind. For this house was different, unlike any I'd seen. This was the home of a U.S. Marine. I'd heard stories about them, I had to see more, so I walked down the hall and pushed open the door. And there he lay sleeping, silent, alone, Curled upon the floor in his one-bedroom home. He seemed so gentle, his face so serene, Not how I pictured a U.S. Marine. Was this the hero, of whom I'd just read? Curled up in his poncho, a floor for his bed? His head was clean-shaven, his weathered face tan. I soon understood, this was more than a man. For I knew well the families that I saw that night, owed their lives to these men, who were willing to fight. Soon around the Nation, the children would play, And grown-ups would celebrate on a bright Christmas day. They all enjoyed freedom, each month and all year, because of Marines like this one lying here. I couldn't help wonder how many lay alone, on a cold Christmas Eve, in a land far from home. Just the very thought brought a tear to my eye. I dropped to my knees and I started to cry. He must have awoken, for I heard a smooth but rough voice,, "Santa, don't cry, this life is my choice I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more. My life is my God, my country, my Corps." With that he rolled over, drifted off into sleep, I couldn't control it, I continued to weep. I watched him for hours, so silent and still. I noticed he shivered from the cold night's chill. So I took off my Nationals post-season jacket, the one made of red, and covered this Marine from his toes to his head. Then I put on his T-shirt of scarlet and gold, with an eagle, globe and anchor emblazoned so bold. And although it fit me, I began to swell with pride, and for one-shining moment, I was Marine Corps deep inside. “Whew!” Then I tactfully but sympathetically changed out of it. I didn't want to leave him so quiet in the night, this guardian of honor so willing to fight. But half-asleep he rolled over, and in a voice clean and pure, said "Carry on, Nationals Man, it's Christmas Day, all secure." One look at my swiss army watch and I knew he was right, Merry Christmas my friend, Semper Fi and goodnight. "It's Christmas time, and there's no need to be afraid At Christmas time, we let in light and banish shade And in our world of plenty, we can spread a smile of joy Throw your arms around Marines at Christmas time !" (With my apologies to the members of UK’s Band Aid who performed and recorded Do They Know It is Christmas on 11-25-1984.And my apologies to Bob Geldof and Midge Ure who wrote this song in reaction to television reports of the 1983–85 famine in Ethiopia) Sincerely, Mr. Niels William “Nationals Man” Pemberton Eagle Scout 5-15-1980 AD @ 20:00 EDT. Troop 1970 Reston. Fairfax County. JMU’92. NVCC’ 2011. The Shortest Day. By Susan Cooper with help from Eagle Scout Niels W. "Nationals Man. "Pemberton. And so the Shortest Day came and the year died And everywhere down the centuries of the snow-white world since 1801. Came Marines @ Marine Barracks Washington singing, dancing, To drive the dark away. They lighted candles in the winter trees; They hung their homes with evergreen; They burned beseeching fires all night long To keep the year alive. And when the new year’s sunshine blazed awake They shouted, reveling. Through all the frosty ages you can hear them Echoing behind us — listen! All the long echoes, sing the same delight, This Shortest Day, As promise wakens in the sleeping land: They carol, feast, give thanks, And dearly love their friends,And think of those less fortunate. And hope for peace. And now so do we, here, now, This year and every year. WELCOME YULE ! Respectfully Sent, Mr. Niels W.
