    I salute the long and proud service of the U.S. Marine Corps!!! But you may want to redo the math some. The Marines were founded on Nov. 10, 1775 but were disbanded when the country could not fund the U.S. Navy in April 1783. The Navy and Marines were reestablished by act of Congress on July 11, 1798 (15 years later). The only "Naval" service the U.S. had between those dates was the Revenue Marine latter the Revenue Cutter Service (Predecessor of the U.S. Coast Guard) beginning in Aug 1790 with one 10 gun "cutter rigged" patrol vessel (later with 10 cutters) to patrol between Maine and Georgia.
    So if we subtract the 15 years of inactivity...... Happy 132nd Birthday to the U.S. Marines!!!!!!!!!!

    Impressive monument. I visited often when I lived in VA. My daughter ran the Marine Corps Marathon last week, and this is the finish.
    Best finish of all the Marathons. Marines hand out the medals at the finish.

    Happy Birthday, Marine Corps!

    You'd better check your math too. You lost 100 years somewhere.
