Couldn't be happier that this ribboned. This Marine was the oldest Marine at our Marine Corps Birthday Ball. He is a retired Marine Colonel who joined the Marine Corps back in 1939. He is one of the nicest men you will ever meet and I am honored to have done so.

I also wanted to thank the voters for not giving this any 1's or 2's simply because he was in the military. That meant a lot to me...
