Maybe it isn't old age? Maybe I've attended my fair share of parties... promotion parties and re-enlistement parties... and going away parties... and lately... retirement parties. Ok... is it just me or does it seem like the military likes to party?? Maybe just the Marine Corps?
There is a rich history and tradition when it comes to military social events. I suppose there is something endearing about a bunch of young military vets sitting around discussing the Marine Corps. I suppose. And there are few things cooler than being in a room full of Marines at any given time. I'm sure the same goes for any branch of service. You can't help but feel proud to be a part of it.
