We had a great night, especially since we arrived at the Grand Excelsior Hotel in Valletta at 3PM (him working, me relaxing after battling a monsoon to get here). All was great until an hour before the start time, we turned on the shower to find no water... so he showered at the Marines' room, while I watched the servicemen tinker and finally got ready 10 minutes before game time. So much for a relaxed prep.
Always proud of the great MSG (Marine Security Guard) detatchment we have at post. They did a professional job with the schedule, colors and the night in general.
Hope we are overseas next year to enjoy the 240th birthday. Happy Birthday Marines!! Thanks for letting us share your special day!
