United States Marine Corps birthday coming up - Nov. 10, 1775

Most people are unaware that the United States Marine Corps is older than the United States. 

 A long time ago, on November 10, 1775 in Philadelphia, in a barroom called Tun Tavern a handful of men decided  what was needed, and those few men formed what is now the United States Marine Corps.

I thought it would be good to take a few moments to honor and salute the brave men and women in Iraq and Afganistan right now.   I wanted to do this on this blog while it was on my mind and before the week comes and goes.  Happy 234th Anniversary !
