Happy 232nd Birthday United States Marine Corps

On this day in 1775, at Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, the United States Marine Corps was founded. Initially set up as a form of naval infantry, the Marine Corps has gone on to be seen as the most disciplined, committed, and honored fighting force in the world.

You don't just become a Marine with your enlistment; you earn that title and with it, the right to wear the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor.

Here is the Commandant of the Marine Corps' video message to the few and the proud this Marine Corps Birthday.

Semper Fi Devil Dogs. Semper Fi Leathernecks. Semper Fi Marines.

And let me take a moment to send a personal Semper Fi to the recently promoted to Staff Sergeant Kurt F. Binversie of the 2nd Marine Logistical Group.


Happy Birthday to the first ones in, and the last ones to leave.
