USMC – 240 Years

Posted: November 10, 2015 by ShortTimer in Marine Corps, US Military

For those unawares, the Marine Corps birthday is November 10.  Back in 1775 it was formed in a bar called the Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, where Samuel Nicholas was tasked with creating a Continental Marine force for the colonies.  There’s been a lot of history since then.

Happy Birthday, Marines.
