marinebday

240 years of exemplary service and sacrifice to our nation.  We tip our hats to our Marines today.  Semper Fi!

Marines have participated in all the wars of the United States, and in most cases were the first service members to fight. To date, Marines have executed more than 300 landings on foreign shores.

Today, there are more than 200,000 active-duty and reserve Marines, organized into three divisions stationed at Camp Lejeune, Camp Pendleton and Okinawa, Japan.
