US Marines Celebrate 242 Years of Service

Celebrating part of the military that’s older than the nation it defends: Friday is the U.S. Marines’ 242nd birthday.

The branch was established on November 10, 1775.

And as of last year, the Marines were more than 183,000 active members strong.

So celebrate these brave men and women by thanking a Marine in your life for their service.
