246th birthday!

On November 10, we our revered U.S. Marines 246th birthday!

“Semper Fi,” “Leathernecks,” “Devil Dogs” and “the Few, the Proud, the Marines,” are just a few of the recognized hallmarks of our revered U.S. Marines. On November 10, we hail their 246th birthday! United States Marine Corps history began on that date in 1775 when the Second Continental Congress ordered “two battalions of Marines be raised”1 for service as landing forces with the fleet.
