In a place called Tun’s Tavern on Nov. 10, 1775, men were recruited into the service of their country and the United States Marine Corps was born.
It has been 240 years, or more precisely, 87,660 days ago that this wonderful country has enjoyed the protection of the corps. If you know a Marine, when you see him or her next, wish them a happy birthday! They will greatly appreciate it. Semper Fi!
