On 10 November 1775, the Continental Congress, meeting in Philadelphia, authorized the raising of two battalions of Marines to join the forces of the Continental Army, then forming in Boston. Since that time, United States Marines have fought in all of our nation's major wars and battles. Over the intervening 232 years, Marines have distinguished themselves in peace and in war, on land, at sea, and in the air, from Trenton and Tripoli to the Argonne, Iwo Jima, the Chosin Reservoir, Vietnam and Al Anbar Province, Iraq. Well done, Marines.
Happy Birthday, United States Marine Corps!

“That’s the way things are done.”
I got involved with the American Legion in the Philippines early in 2004. My wife had prepared a home for us in the islands while I worked long hours. Eventually, the time came to settle into the new home. We landed in Manila New Year’s Day early in the morning. My wife and I made our way to our home in the hills above Olongapo City only to find it had been robbed and ransacked in the weeks before we got there. My dream to relax in the tropics had taken a sharp detour.
