Happy Birthday Marines. Also, Baby Otters.

Congratulations, Marines, on your 235th birthday!

Almost forgot, but Slublog at AoSHQ reminded me. There's also a great picture he posted of Lt. General Lewis B "Chesty" Puller that nobody but a Marine could pull off.

Also, as you'll recall, I mentioned baby otters. Can't have a post about Marines without baby otters, now can we? Of course not.

Because, let's face it, all you really care about are cute infant water-borne mammals.

Got this from Ace, as well.
