I attended the celebration of the 234th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps last night at the Embassy in Kabul. I had heard several times before that in the more remote capitals of the world, the annual Birthday Ball was quite the event for the diplomatic community. It’s 100% true. Wow. From beginning to end, it was a memorable evening, quite possibly the best I’ve ever attended.
At least five VMI grads there too– 82, two 91s, 94 and 89. Of course, we will all get together next week for Founders Day, and I’ll have pics for that.
