Today is the 237th birthday of the USMC

Today is the 237th birthday of the USMC

Nov. 10, 2012

The US Marine Corps has been an instrumental part
of protecting the safety of American families, our
 Constitution, and the freedoms we enjoy as citizens
of this great nation. From the Revolutionary War, to
 the wars we are still fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq,
Marines are there, fighting in the front lines, willing to
make the ultimate sacrifice, in defense of their homeland.

Approximately 20,000 Marines are part of the multinational coalition of over 98,000 troops in Afghanistan. In Iraq, hundreds of Marines remain as part of the 50,000 strong security and advisory force.  Today is their birthday too, and they will not be able to celebrate with their fellow Marines at USMC celebrations and balls held around the country.
 
While some Marines can celebrate this birthday, others must continue the fight! Show them your support!

The Lee's Summit Tribune thanks every Marine for their service to our country and we thank them
for our freedoms that we have.
