Happy Birthday USMC-Standing Proud For 236 Years

Today is the 236th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. If you ask any Marine they will tell you without hesitation November 10, 1775 is the date of the founding of the United States Marine Corps.

My father-in-law served in WWI, WWII and the Korean War. He would be 107 if he was still alive today.
He landed on the shores of Okinawa as part of the First Marine Infantry Division. Once of the bloodiest battles of the war. Though he never spoke much of his service to our country he rose through the ranks from a Private to a Lt. Col before retiring.

When my husband (USAF) received orders to report to Kadena AB in Okinawa my father-in-law was visible shaken. His only memories of the island were the year he spent in battle. He would never make the trip to visit us in Okinawa and we understood why.

Thank you to all of the US Marine's who have served our country so valiantly and who continue to serve today.

Happy Birthday
