While Saturday, Nov. 11 - Veterans Day - is meant to honor
all men and women who have served in the armed forces, there's another
celebration this week for one specific branch of our military.
On Friday, Nov. 10, the U.S. Marine Corps marked its 231st
birthday. The celebration commemorates the day in 1775 when the Continental
Congress signed a resolution forming the Corps, which originally was conceived
to serve as an infantry unit for the U.S. Navy.
Everyone at OOIDA and Land Line wishes our brave
Marines a very happy 231st birthday.
