240 years ago a few good men got together in a place called Tun Tavern over a beer and decided to make sure the country that they all fought so hard to get to would be protected. They made an oath.
240 years later this country owes it’s flag and it’s land to every brave soul who has EARNED that eagle globe and anchor. We live today on this beautiful land because of them.
Marines have been in EVERY WAR since that day and have never been defeated. They don’t often get recognized and they rarely star in movies. They are the ones who would rather just do what they do and not complain or brag or even let you know who they are or what they have done.
If your blessed enough to know one, well just carefully thank them and enjoy life that he or his brothers has so graciously given for your freedom and liberty.
