Happy B-day Marines
237 years ago today a Quaker that had recently been appointed as "Captain of Marines", Captain Samuel Nicholas began the recruitment efforts of the first two battalions of Marines at Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, PA. Three months later the Marines saw their first battle and have been fighting for and protecting our country ever since. So sometime today raise a toast to the leathernecks past, present and future.
