Lest you think we forgot. Marines have a special place in the Gormogons’ hearts for all they do and all they have done.
The Czar would like to bring up a battle even very few Marines remember: the Battle for Hills 111 and 119, which were the last ground actions of the Korean War, in July, 1953. First in, last out.
Bear in mind that the United Nations decided that the last battle of the war needed to be won by the United Nations, not China. So the USMC was sent in to Hills 111 and 119 for no real tactical or strategic importance except to embarrass Chinayet they performed their best under very difficult circumstances as though it was the most critical fight of all.
And even though the USAF gets the credit for the last kill of the war, the last real battle was won by the USMC in a fight few remember.
Божію Поспѣшествующею Милостію Мы, Дима Грозный Императоръ и Самодержецъ Всероссiйскiй, цѣсарь Московскiй. The Czar was born in the steppes of Russia in 1267, and was cheated out of total control of all Russia upon the death of Boris Mikhailovich, who replaced Alexander Yaroslav Nevsky in 1263. However, in 1283, our Czar was passed over due to a clerical error and the rule of all Russia went to his second cousin Daniil (Даниил Александрович), whom Czar still resents. As a half-hearted apology, the Czar was awarded control over Muscovy, inconveniently located 5,000 miles away just outside Chicago. He now spends his time seething about this and writing about other stuff that bothers him.
