“You’re making the wrong assumption that a Marine by himself is outnumbered.”
– General Peter Pace, USMC (CMC) 28 Jul 2006
Saturday morning muster for coffee!
We at the Treasure Valley Detachment, Marine Corps League have a Coffee Klatch at Quinn’s Restaurant on Vista Avenue in Boise every Saturday morning from 9am (0900) to 10am (1000) muster early, most everyone is there by 8am (0800). Marine’s, FMF Navy Corpsman, Chaplains and friends are welcome to join us for coffee. You don’t need to be a member to shoot the bull with other Marines. Sometimes a new
