This past weekend was a very special time for our country! It was the birthday of our United States Marine Corps!
In Philadelphia, during the American Revolution, the idea of a marine force to protect and serve the United States by sea and by land was born. A resolution was drafted by a committee of the Continental Congress and presented. The resolution was passed November 10, 1775!
Every year, our serving marines, retired marines, family and friends gather to celebrate this memorable occasion and to remind us of the service our brave marines give so that we may have our freedom!
