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!
