The Marine Corps has been creating its legacy since November 10th, 1775. This brave group has been protecting our national interests on legendary battlefields as well as helping struggling communities at home. The USMC has a fascinating history, and we honor all who have passed through its ranks on this day.
“For me, it serves as more of a nostalgic day that reflects both Memorial Day and Veterans Day -- it's a time where Marines focus on their brothers in arms, remembering the good, and staring off into the distance as sorrow washes over them for all of their fellow Devil Dogs who gave their lives for our freedom.” Justin Sloan (USMC Veteran), Military.com

The Marine Corps will remain the ‘force of choice’ for the United States as the country navigates an uncertain world.
