244th Anniversary Of The United States Marines

United States Marine Corps

All Men Are Created Equal Then Some Become Marines.

The official birthday of the United States Marine Corps is on the 10th of November 1775. That was the day when the Second Continental Congress established the Continental Marines with the following decree:

That two battalions of Marines be raised consisting of one Colonel, two lieutenant-colonels, two majors and other officers, as usual in other regiments; that they consist of an equal number of privates as with other battalions, that particular care be taken that no persons be appointed to offices, or enlisted into said battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve for and during the present war with Great Britain and the Colonies; unless dismissed by Congress; that they be distinguished by the names of the First and Second Battalions of Marines.

This Marine Corps birthday, let’s remember those who gave their lives, and those still giving, so we may enjoy freedom. According to the Marine Corps, if you know a Marine, the proper way to greet them today “Happy Birthday, Marine”.
