Happy 240th Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps (Video)

240th Marine Corps Birthday Message

240 years go on Nov 10, 1775 during the American Revolution, The U.S. Marine Corps was established by the Continental Congress. In war and peace these brave individuals make sacrifices far beyond what most of us appreciate. In the name of freedom, they give up the comfort and convenience of civilian life in order to protect our rights and liberties. Without their devotion to duty and dedication to freedom there simply would not be a United States of America.

From this veteran, a BIG thank you to all of our Alexandria residents who have served in the Corps. Be sure to check out this fantastic interactive timeline of the U.S. Marine Corps with lots of photos and history.

Semper Fi Marines!
