Two hundred and thirty six years ago today, the United States Marine Corps was born in a tavern in Philadelphia. While that may seem an odd place, those who know Marines understand that it could be no other way.
Marines have served around the world defending their country. Every war, conflict, "police-action" or simple show of force has had Marines leading the way. Today Marines serve around the world in two theaters of war, embassies, ships and even at the White House.
Happy Birthday Marines
