#TBT This is me and my grandfather, LTC John Cavalero, after my first semester as a rat at The Virginia Military Institute. He was a big part of why I decided to go to VMI. He was a hero. He was a fighter, literally, he was a golden gloves boxing champion (21 wins 2 loses). He played division one football, but when he blew out his knee his dreams of going pro were gone, so he joined the marines. As a marine, my poppy fought in two wars. He survived Iwo Jima and over 30 months in the Pacific Theater, before returning home. Offered a regular commission, he and his wife Josephine tried to start a family, and ended up adopting their amazing son, Mike, my dad! Poppy then opened his own auto repair shop. He fought and fought to make money and pay bills. He hired many illegal immigrants and was actively hiring from the prison release program (even if it meant my dad having to break up a knife fight every once and a while). HE TRULY BELIEVED IN PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF RACE, RELIGION, or SEXUAL ORIENTATION. He wasn't perfect, I don't remember talking to him too much or getting many hugs, but he loved the heck out of me. He fought and I hope to have that same fight in me for
what I believe in. He protected what was his and I will mine. #Marine #MarineCorpsBirthday #VeteransDay #thursdaythoughts

241st marine corps birthday, That shop picture tho #marinecorpsbirthday #241st

MOST RECENT

Even though we were deployed, we still got together on the back of the ship to celebrate our 241st birthday. The Marine Corp’s birthday cake-cutting ceremony is important to all Marines, as it is an annual renewal of each Marine’s commitment to the Corps . . . and the Corps’ commitment to our nations quest for peace and freedom worldwide. In the pictures, the oldest Marine, Gunny Carney, gets a piece of cake, then he turns and gives the youngest Marine a piece, signifying the passing of knowledge and experience to from the old to the young of our Corps.

"I love the Corps for those intangible possessions that cannot be issued: pride, honor, integrity, and being able to carry on the traditions for generations of warriors past."

1 out of 1 Marines agree -- our .50 cal bottle openers are better than getting another crappy challenge coin or pint glass. Check them out at bit.ly/Birthday_Ball_Gifts or DM us to ask about wholesale pricing.
