Marine Corps Birthday

The United States Marine Corps Birthday is observed annually on November 10.

The United States Marine Corps, a branch of the United States Armed Forces, is responsible for providing power protection from the sea using the mobility of the United States Navy to rapidly deliver combined-arms task forces. The Continental Congress first established the Continental Marines on November 10, 1775, leading up to the American Revolution.  Two battalions of Marines fought for independence both on land and at sea.
