November 10th USMC Day

Today we celebrate the birth of the Marine Corp on November 10th, 1775. Back then they were called the Continental Marines, their main duty – keep the enemy from boarding the and capturing the small Continental Navy ships. Over the years, Congress has tried desperately to get rid of the Marines, until they realized that they were the reason we were winning wars. Their numbers have always been kept low and their training among the best in the world. They are generally the first to land during any conflict, and the last to defend even when all hope is gone. We owe a lot to the Marine Corp. The few, the proud, the Marines. Semper Fi.

How to celebrate – Thank any Marine you see for their service. Study the conflicts the Marines have been involved in. Visit the National Marine Museum in Virginia.
