I know I am late doing this but I wanted to recognize today as the 238th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps. I was not in the US Marines but I was in the US Army. However I have always admired and respected the US Marines and what they do all the time to protect all of us. I never even tried to be a US Marine because I always knew I was not good enough to be one of them.

If you can take a minute to to look up the details of a detachment of United States Marines and soldiers against the forces of Tripoli during the First Barbary War. It was the first recorded land battle of the United States fought overseas.
