Commandants Message
I hope to see many of you on Tuesday April 10th, for a joint Marine and Associates meeting.

We will be building new docks this Sunday, April 8th, and will be putting them in the lake on Sunday April; 22nd. We hope this will bring the warm spring weather we are supposed to have this time of year.

We will presenting a sword at the honor Marine grad at Holy Cross on next Friday the 13th.

100th Anniversary

BELLEAU WOOD

"Retreat, hell
We just got here."

R ushing into the breach, the Marines encountered exhausted French soldiers heading in the other direction. French officers told the Marines they, too, should turn around. The Marines dismissed the idea. “Retreat, hell,” one Marine is alleged to have said. “We just got here.”...

Acts of extraordinary heroism were commonplace. "Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?" 1st Sgt. Dan Daly famously yelled to his attacking Marines as he urged them into German lines. The lines would come to epitomize Marine Corps espirit for generations to come....

“The only thing that drove those Marines through those woods in the face of such resistance as they met was their individual, elemental guts, plus the hardening of the training through which they had gone,” wrote Lt. Col. Frederick May Wise, the commander of 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines.
