Happy 235th Birthday MARINES
On November 10, 1775, the Continental Congress passed a resolution stating that "two battalions of Marines be raised" for service as landing forces with the fleet. This established the Continental Marines and marked the birth of the United States Marine Corps.
Our first recruiting office was Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, PA
Our first amphibious operation was in March 1776
We fight our countries battles in the air, on land, and sea
On the 7th day God rested, we over ran his perimeter and have been guarding the gates of heaven ever since
The next time you see a Marine, shake their hand and buy them a beer, they've earned it.

"I come in peace. I didn't bring artillery. But I'm pleading with you, tears in my eyes: If you f*ck with me, I'll kill you all." Marine General Mattis
