Today, November 10, we have two very important things to be grateful for:

First, Happy 248th Birthday, USMC!

We celebrate the legacy of courage, honor, and dedication that the United States Marine Corps has upheld for nearly two and a half centuries. From the Halls of Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli, Marines have defended freedom with unwavering resolve.

To every Marine, past and present, thank you for your sacrifice and commitment to our great nation. Your bravery inspires us all.

Second, the Observation of Veterans Day

We thank all Veterans for your service and sacrifices. We are forever grateful for your service.
