Who We Are

Marine Corps

Even before America existed, there were Marines fighting for its future.

Founded in 1775, the United States Marine Corps shares its legacy with that of the United States of America. Intrinsically bound, the Marines have fought battles throughout time to defend our constitution, protect our people, and to stabilize the world in times of crisis.

Some people spend their life wondering if they made a difference. Marines don't have that problem.

― Ronald Reagan

The Birthday

The Marine Corps birthday is a celebration of the fighting spirit. Older than our Nation itself, the Corps reminds itself and our Nation each November 10 of a brilliant history of battles fought and won. Just as importantly, we celebrate the Marines—past and present—who won them.
