Today is the 231st birthday of the United States Marine Corps. We’re very grateful of the service of the USMC in protecting our country (with the exception of the intellectually-challenged Lt. Josh Rushing, who now works for the Terrorist News Network, Al-Jazeera).
In honor of today’s Marine Corps birthday, the National Museum of the Marine Corps opens, today, in Triangle, Virginia (officially open to the public, this Monday, November 13th). It’s located adjacent to the Marine Corps base in Quantico.
From an ad in today’s USA Today:
This living Museum will, for all time, attest to the Corps’ honor courage and commitment in service to our Nation.
Sounds very cool. Happy Birthday, USMC! Here’s to 231-plus more years. Semper Fidelis.
