Put on your party hats and bring out the birthday cake, it’s time to celebrate! A very happy 239th birthday to the United States Marine Corps! Captain Samuel Nicholas formed two battalions of Continental Marines on 10 November 1775 in Philadelphia as a naval infantry. Since then, the mission of the Marine Corps has evolved with changing military doctrine and American foreign policy.
We would also like to wish a very Happy Birthday to the following volunteer who celebrates a birthday in the month of November:
- Clodagh M., WI Director (November 6)
- Cherie K., Warriors’ Angels Outreach Liaison for San Antonio TX (November 22)
May all your birthday wishes come true. Thank you for everything you do and hope you have a wonderful day!
