The U.S. Marine Corps was founded 246 years ago in Tun Tavern, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Since 1921, we, the Marines, have been celebrating our Corps birthday on November 10 (today).
Our citizens have called the Marines and want us to do the best we can, to protect American soil and to protect our way of life and freedom. The goal we all swear by is to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America.”
As Marines, we are very proud of our history and our heritage. As we celebrate our Corps birthday, please remember our legacy and those who have served before us. [Also Read: Who is David Cottom? Clarence schools closed due to police search for him]
Be proud of your Marine Corps and your Marine Corps League.
And finally, Marine Corps League Lake Superior Detachment 764 would like to invite all Marines, FMF Corpsmen and family members to help us celebrate our Corps birthday today, at Casa Calabria, 1106 North Third St., Marquette, starting at 6 p.m.
Pizza, snacks and cake provided, cash bar and gifts.
