On this November 10, 2021 we celebrate the 246th Birthday of our Corps! I invite you who earned the Title past & present to drop a line and even share something if you wish. I raised my right hand in July 1985 and Retired in 2006 after a brutal tour in the most volatile location on Earth in 2004....

Semper Fidelis Marines!

246 Years Young!

Wasn't sure if THIS was the proper "Section" or "Discussion" Thread, (but) - what's the saying about that word?

Know for a fact comms exist with my 0311, 0369s, 0200s and of course 0302s here. How can XX number of those who clicked on a "Marine" Thread not share something in common? No friggin way. Call to arms....

Shot over.....

(1) On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name “Marine”. In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.

(2) The record of our corps is one which will bear comparison with that of the most famous military organizations in the world’s history. During 90 of the 146 years of its existence the Marine Corps has been in action against the Nation’s foes. From the Battle of Trenton to the Argonne, Marines have won foremost honors in war, and in the long eras of tranquility at home, generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every corner of the seven seas, that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.

(3) In every battle and skirmish since the birth of our corps, Marines have acquitted themselves with the greatest distinction, winning new honors on each occasion until the term “Marine” has come to signify all that is highest in military efficiency and soldierly virtue.

(4) This high name of distinction and soldierly repute we who are Marines today have received from those who preceded us in the corps. With it we have also received from them the eternal spirit which has animated our corps from generation to generation and has been the distinguishing mark of the Marines in every age. So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal to every emergency in the future as they have been in the past, and the men of our Nation will regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served as “Soldiers of the Sea” since the founding of the Corps.

Hope the Marines here have a fantastic birthday. And remember, if your Corpsman tells you to stop drinking or sit down or not fucking jump off a roof. Maybe do him a solid and listen.
