233 Years and Counting. . .
The 233rd birthday of the Marine Corps is 10 November. It's the day when Marines throughout the world—both active and former—will be attending celebrations and galas. Young Marines in their first set of dress blues, accompanied by their equally young girlfriends wearing last year's high school prom dresses, will proudly rub elbows with the captains, majors, and other senior officers under whom they serve.
