The Marine Barracks at Eighth and I Streets Southeast and the Marine Corps Memorial at Iwo Jima will be abuzz today with birthday celebrations for the United States Marine Corps, which was formed on this day in 1775 to assist Colonial ships as infantry-at-sea.  The Marines that are posted to the Barracks are certainly a part of the Barracks Row community on Capitol Hill, and we urge you to celebrate the men and women of the Marine Corps today, and every day.

Semper Fi, Marines.  Semper Fi.

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.
