Birthdays are a time for celebration! Every November 10th all around the globe United States Marines both young and old salute the birthday of their Corps. Whether celebrating at a formal Marine Corps Ball or in individual toasts to lost Marines, they recognize the sacrifice and service of those who have gone before and those who continue to serve.
On this the 237th birthday of The United States Marine Corps, I say “Happy Birthday” to the men and women who are willing to be first to the fight.
And, thank you!
