It’s Saturday morning, 10 Nov. 18 and all Marines wake up to celebrate 243 years of our United States Marine Corps. We will check the uniform, polish the brass and make sure our shoes shine like diamonds.
I would like to wish all Members of the Marine Corps League a very Happy 243rd Birthday! May you, your family and friends take time to celebrate the birth of the greatest military organization in the world.
Take a moment to look at the EGA emblem and reflect back to the day it was presented to you and feel the pride that will be with you through life. OORAH
