United States MARINE CORPS
The United States Marine Corps traces its roots to the Continental Marines of the American Revolutionary War, formed by Captain Samuel Nicolas by a resolution of the second Continental Congress on “10 November 1775” , to raise two battalions of Marines. “November 10” , the U.S. Marine Corps Birthday honors the history, values, and memory of our heroes who have served, and rekindles the bond which unites generations of Marines. The day celebrates traditions of the Marine Corps with profound respect, paying tribute to the heritage of this distinguished service.
Marine motto Semper Fidelis means “Always Faithful”
Happy Birthday Leathernecks, Devil dogs, ol’ salts, and Chesty Puller!
