United States Marine Corp Birthday

Submitted by David Czysz on Wed, 11/09/2022 - 07:00

The United States Marine Corp is celebrating 247 years on November 10, 2022.  Honor, Courage and Commitment are the Marine Corp’s core values.  It is precisely these embodied values that have produced their familiar Esprit de Corps, or deep, shared send of loyalty and comradeship.  Join with us all this month as we pay tribute to our Marines and as we celebrate their 247th anniversary.

Another very real ethos Marines live by is “leave no man behined”.   Marines exemplified this conduct during Operation beau Charger on May 20, 1967 in Vietnam, when they quickly aided a wounded comrade, as depicted in the attached picture.
