Happy Birthday, Marines!

By Chrissy the Hyphenated

The United States Marine Corps traces its institutional roots to a resolution passed by the Second Continental Congress on November 10, 1775, to raise 2 battalions of Marines. Happy birthday to all you Leathernecks out there. Thank you for your service!

    Marines do not wear their hats indoors. When Corporal K was privileged to meet President Bush and tour the White House, they left their covers on this bench in a foyer.
