The Marine Corps is 237 years old today.  They were born in Tun Tavern back in 1775.  That's right the Marines were born in a bar!  As a Marine Veteran myself I have to say Happy Birthday Devil Dogs!  

The Marines like to celebrate their birthday with the Marine Corps Ball.  Basically a Prom for a bunch of Marines plus a little alcohol.  Trust me this makes for an interesting time!  To all my fellow Marines out there make sure you drink responsibly and try not to get to crazy!  Happy B-Day!
