Happy 235th Birthday USMC!

You don't look a day over 200!

Today is the 235th birthday for the United States Marine Corps...
Did you know?
During the American Revolution, a committee of the Continental Congress met to draft a resolution calling for two battalions of Marines that would be able to fight for independence at sea, as well as on shore. With the approval of the resolution on 11/10/1775, the Continental Marines were officially formed.
