November 10, 2023 is the 248th birthday of the US Marines Corps. While I come from an Army family and the Complementary Spouse is from an Air Force family, we both recognize the dedication that Marines have to this country and our freedom.
I try to recognize the event with old recruiting posters and the official birthday message.
And the official birthday message is below. It evidently was recorded sometime in October as the Commandant, Gen. Eric Smith, had a heart attack on October 29th. Best wishes to him for a full recovery.
