Minting Marines 

To commemorate the 230th anniversary of the founding of the United States Marines, the United States Mint has designed and struck a silver dollar. The design -- tracking as it does the U.S.M.C. War Memorial and the most famous combat photograph in history -- is not very original, but it will always inspire.

Do you know, I had no idea about this?

I suppose I shall have to procure one for the spousal unit. He doesn't collect things but he's sort of sentimental though he would rather die than admit to it. If I get him one, he will grunt and throw it in his dresser drawer, and (I imagine) be secretly somewhat pleased.

Or he may pass out from shock that I did it. I don't normally do things like this.
