Say Happy Birthday, thanks to Marines

242 years strong

Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion


On Nov. 10, 1775, the second Continental Congress passed a resolution “to raise two battalions of Marines.”

For 242 years, young men and women have served in every clime and place with honor and distinction. If you know a Marine (there are no former nor ex-Marines), thank her/him and wish them another Happy Birthday, Marine, we are grateful for your service.
