THE CADENCE OF A NATION

This Nation has a cadence born of more than two centuries of confidence and ambition. If you listen closely, you’ll also hear the cadence of the United States Marine Corps in lock step. From the moment a young country first called Marines to arms, the Corps has been what America has put her trust in. Each Marine Corps birthday, we celebrate all that has been—and all that continues to be.
