Today commemorates the 234th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corp.  On November 10, 1775, a Committee of the Continental Congress met at the Tun Tavern in Philadelphia and authorized two battalions of Marines to fight against the British in the war for independence.

A very happy birthday and a special thank you to all who have and continue to serve in the USMC.  Ooh Rah!
