Military Order of the Devil Dogs

I hold the title of United States Marine, and understand the commitment of holding the title, Devil Dog. It is a tradition born at Belleau Wood in the year 1918, of a Force In Readiness and the "First To Fight". ... The Military Order of the Devil Dogs is the fun and honor society of the Marine Corps League.

Happy 4th of July

Yes, it is the 245 Birthday of America and I want to wish all in our Department the Happiest 4th of July ever. While you enjoy the fireworks with your family, my wife and I will be at home having a beautiful dinner and looking out our window for the fireworks at Surprise Stadium displayed by the City of Surprise.


Yes, it is the birthday of America, but I also wish to say that it’s the 51st year of our marriage.


To my wife, Happy Anniversary!,   To my Country, Happy Birthday!  To our Department, Happy fourth of July!,  and,  God Bless you!  Please be safe, stay healthy, and arrive  home safely if you travel…

Marines’ Hymn Lyrics


From the Halls of Montezuma

To the Shores of Tripoli;

We fight our country's battles

In the air, on land and sea;

First to fight for right and freedom

And to keep our honor clean;

We are proud to claim the title

of United States Marine.


Our flag's unfurled to every breeze

From dawn to setting sun;

We have fought in ev'ry clime and place

Where we could take a gun;

In the snow of far-off Northern lands

And in sunny tropic scenes;

You will find us always on the job

The United States Marines.


Here's health to you and to our Corps

Which we are proud to serve

In many a strife we've fought for life

And never lost our nerve;

If the Army and the Navy

Ever look on Heaven's scenes;

They will find the streets are guarded

By United States Marines.
