The 237th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps
There are few who are as true to the core, who are so tremendously proud to serve their Country, as those of the United States Marine Corps. If you have known, have met, served with, or served as a Marine, you know what I mean. Today is the Marine Corps’ 237th Birthday, and they deserve to be honored and celebrated today. On November 10, 1775, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Captain Samuel Nicholas formed two battalions of Continental Marines as naval infantry. I dedicate this message to all U.S. Marines; retired, active duty, reserve, and those who aspire to become Marines. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OORAH and SEMPER FI!!!
“Some people wonder all their lives if they’ve made a difference. The Marines don’t have that problem.”

2012 Marine Corps Birthday Message
Warriors of Honor, Courage and Commitment
Becoming a warrior means joining a brotherhood, forged in the crucible of training and proven on the battlefield. A true warrior is measured not only by his strength, but his honor. No battle is ever won alone. Warriors never rest. Anyone can follow a path; Few make their own. Every warrior lives for the fight. For there is always another battle waiting to be fought and won.
