UNITED STATES – The United States Marine Corps celebrated its 236th birthday yesterday, continuing to defend our nation on the ground, in the air, and by sea. Ready to roll, the US Marine Corps is known for its ability to respond rapidly whenever necessary.
The US Marine Corps was established before the Constitution had even been ratified when the Continental Congress created two battalions of marines in 1775 to assist the navy during the Revolutionary War.
