Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps!

“God we thank you for the brave men and women who have sacrificed and in some cases fought to preserve the gift of freedom you have given us in the United States of America. We know that war and violence are never your first best, but at times we have to resort to enforcing justice in order to preserve it. For those who have given up their own security to lay down their lives in order that others may enjoy security we give you thanks. Lord, preserve and protect those who preserve and protect. Bless the Marines who often pay the heaviest toll in conflict. We are proud of them. May your favor remain! In Jesus.”
