Publishing calendars with beautiful women or men is a means that is increasingly used playfully. The Netherlands' Marine Corps calendar is now publishing, full of muscular and sexy soldiers.
The Marine Corps was photographed with the slogan 'Our body is our weapon'. According to the makers and the models you get a 'look in the kitchen' while browsing through daily moments from the life of a marine at the barracks in Doorn (province of Utrecht).
Whoever purchases the calendar immediately supports a good cause. The proceeds go to the Qua Patet Orbis Semper Fidelis Fund, a foundation that works for old and actively serving marines in periods of illness and loneliness. A part also goes to the Dutch Marines Rowing Challenge Foundation, which raises money for soldiers in need.
The response has been enthusiastic and the first edition of 3,550 pieces was sold out in 24 hours. Today it was announced that a second shipment will put on sale soon.
The calendar costs €16.65 (a reference to 1665, the year in which the force was established) and it can be ordered here.
