A man in a tux is even better than a man in uniform.

In honor of Veterans Day and the Marine Corps' 233rd birthday, I bring you MY veteran and my oldest son, on their way to the Marine Corps Ball last Saturday night. Aren't they handsome?

Mike really is that much taller than Ben. And yes, he is our natural-born son.

Within the first ten minutes of being there, a rather inebriated woman dumped her glass of red wine down Mike's sleeve. Good thing he's wearing a dark suit. Still, they had fun pressing the flesh, as they say, and managed to get home by 11 pm.

Many thanks to all the veterans (and their families) out there for your service to our country. And happy birthday, USMC.

Be thankful ~
