    Happy Birthday Marines

    MARINE CORPS ORDERS
    No. 47 (Series 1921)
    HEADQUARTERS U.S. MARINE CORPS
    Washington, November 1, 1921

    759. The following will be read to the command on the 10th of November, 1921, and hereafter on the 10 November of every year. Should the order not be received by the 10th of November, 1921, it will be read upon receipt.

    (1) On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name "Marine". In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.

    (2) The record of our corps is one which will bear comparison with that of the most famous military organizations in the world's history. During 90 of the 146 years of its existence the Marine Corps has been in action against the Nation's foes. From the Battle of Trenton to the Argonne, Marines have won foremost honors in war, and in the long eras of tranquility at home, generation after generation of Marines have grown gray in war in both hemispheres and in every corner of the seven seas, that our country and its citizens might enjoy peace and security.

    (3) In every battle and skirmish since the birth of our corps, Marines have acquitted themselves with the greatest distinction, winning new honors on each occasion until the term "Marine" has come to signify all that is highest in military efficiency and soldierly virtue.

    (4) This high name of distinction and soldierly repute we who are Marines today have received from those who preceded us in the corps. With it we have also received from them the eternal spirit which has animated our corps from generation to generation and has been the distinguishing mark of the Marines in every age. So long as that spirit continues to flourish Marines will be found equal to every emergency in the future as they have been in the past, and the men of our Nation will regard us as worthy successors to the long line of illustrious men who have served as "Soldiers of the Sea" since the founding of the Corps.

    Phad Greetings, Never serving in the military thank you for the quote from the major general. My heart goes out to the men and women who have worn the uniform. Just maybe I can be of some help against the tyranny here in our country when the time comes to show my respect. God willing!!! The Lord knows I have enough weapons and ammo to stop a small army for weeks maybe months

    Happy Birthday Marines!.......About 15 of us Marines who now serve in the Army stopped our work today to celebrate the Marine Corp Birthday........We read the orders and the oldest marines passed the first cut piece of cake (by the highest ranking) to the youngest Marine present......

    A bit premature, but I'm bumping this up now. I'll be out, working the wells tomorrow for most of the day.

    Semper Fidelis.

    Happy Birthday to the Corps. I have great respect for those who choose to serve in the defense of our nation, and the highest of all for those who serve or have served in the Corps.

    (I hope the REMF's can forestall the adoption of the new girlie hats, however.)
