On this day in military 1775

On this day in military 1775. The Continental Congress passed a resolution raising two battalions of Marines to be used as landing forces for the Continental Navy. In light of recent events in Iraq, we should all take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices of the men whose motto is "Semper Fidelis" ("Always Faithful!") in defense of the liberty of the United States of America. It is customary today to wish each and every Marine, current and former, "Happy Birthday!" (Happy Birthday, Cap'n!). So thanks to Uncle Sam's Misguided Children, the Great El-ahrairah now has two birthdays. Semper Fi, Cap'n!
