Happy Birthday Marines!

On 10 November 2014, we want to wish the U.S. Marine Corps a very happy 239th birthday.

The U.S. Marine Corps was formed in 1775 and officially became a vital component of the U.S. Department of the Navy in 1834. Highly trained in amphibious combat, today’s U.S. Marines continue to protect liberty and freedom by operating posts on land and aboard warships around the world. The men and women who serve as Marines are highly regarded as elite warriors with honor, courage and deep commitment towards defending the U.S. Constitution. We thank all the heroic Marines who have fought for our freedoms and continue to guard our nation and core principles.

Learn more about this amazing organization by watching the official 239th birthday message. Marines of the past, present and future look back at two important battles (WWII’s Battle of Peleliu and the 2004 Battle of Fallujah) as a way to learn from those who have come before them and to celebrate what it means to be a Marine. Take a look.

To honor both the Marine Corps birthday, please use code MarineCorps15 for 15% off your order and free domestic ground shipping.
