A hearty Happy Birthday to the Marine Corp that turns 236 this November! Thank you for all of your hard work in protecting the American People through many, many years. To be sure, the corp has defended our American freedoms since the Revolutionary war as the Continental Marine Corp in 1775!
The Marine Corp was officially enacted as a military force by John Adams in 1798 with Major William Burroughs and a corp of 500 privates.
If you know a Marine – don’t forget to say thank you! and Happy Birthday!
