Happy 244th Birthday, US Marine Corps!

Share on GAB

It’s a birthday party like no other and always includes cake cutting with a sword …an art in the Marine Corps. For Marines, marksmanship makes it too late to run. Fighting…they’re not called “Devil Dogs” for nothin’. November 10, 2019 is the 244th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. They were born to fight. What do you expect when their “birthplace” was a tavern?

They have legends too: Presley O’Bannon, Chesty Puller,  John Basilone, Kyle Carpenter, and everyone in between, decorated Marines are part of their history – a history of sacrifice.

Lt General Lewis B. ‘Chesty’ Puller was one of the most decorated Marines in history. Yes, he had that art of cake cutting with a sword down pat. But when he was fighting, stay out of his way.

Semper Fi – always faithful. It’s a motto that Marines are called to live by. For some who have fought side by side with USMC warriors in battle, there will always be a bond.

The birthday wishes even came from other nations who have fought beside our own:

Marine Corps Cadence:

On the 8th day, God created Marines to protect our beloved nation. The Devil groaned and said, “Oh sh*t.” Happy 244th Birthday to Our Nation’s Beloved United States Marine Corps
