The United States Marine Corps celebrates today its 231st birthday, formed on November 10th, 1775. Possibly the finest fighting force ever assembled, their history is long and colorful. If you get a chance, go check out the Marine Corps Memorial (the Iwo Jima Memorial near the Netherlands Carillon) today and remember our first fighting force.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
