The Marines Have Landed


I have several from this set. They’re little pins with catchy or funny slogans in them. I think they’re from my dad’s day, and maybe they came in Chex cereal or something. These may have been my dads. Look familiar to anyone?

Later, I found the phrase in a slang dictionary. It means help has arrived or is on the way. Apparently, whoever was wearing the button was there to put things in order.
