Happy 230th Birthday Marines!

(click the Image for More information about the Marine Corps)
November 10th, Tun Tavern in Philadelphia Pennsylvania, the Colonial Congress signed into being the Continental Marines, later to become,


From the halls of Montezuma To the shores of Tripoli' ,
We fight our countrys battles In the air', on land, and sea.
First to fight for right and freedom , And to keep our honor clean,
We are proud to claim the title Of United States Marines.

Our flags unfurl'd to every breeze From dawn to setting sun';
We have fought in every clime and place Where we could take a gun.
In the snow of far-off northern lands And in sunny tropic scenes,
You will find us always on the job - The United States Marines.

Here's health to you and to our Corps Which we are proud to serve;
In many a strife we've fought for life And never lost our nerve.
If the Army and the Navy Ever gaze on Heaven's scenes,
They will find the streets are guarded By
United States Marines
Semper Fidelis Marines!

Also pay a visit to Mustang at Social Sense, and wish that Devil Dog a Happy Birthday!
