Marine Corps Birthday - 231 years old

Semper Fidelis

Today is the 231st Birthday of the United States Marine Corps.

On November 10, 1775, the Second Continental congress meeting in Philadelphia passed a resolution stating that "two battalions of Marines be raised" for service as landing forces with the fleet. This resolution established the Continental Marines and marked the birth date of the United States Marine Corps.

To all Marines, past and present, we wish you a Happy Birthday, we thank you, and we wish God's blessings for you all.
