Happy Birthday – 239 Years

Happy Birthday to our Corps.  From the yardarms of the Revolutionary War through to current operations around the globe our Corps has served this country.  Today we mark our 239 birthday.  From humble beginnings in a small tavern in Philadelphia, to today’s active duty force of almost 200,000 our Corps has been the leading expeditionary edge for this nation’s interests.

As is customary, a couple of video celebrations for your viewing pleasure:
