On November 10th, 1775, the Second Continental Congress met at Tun Tavern (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) and decided to raise the first two battalions of Marines. What has happened between then and now has cemented the United States Marine Corps as an elite force fueled by honor and brotherhood. 

Now, this elite force of military operations is one of the most prized and celebrated branches of the amazing United States military. From rapid delivery, to extreme tactical operations, the United States Marines do just about everything there is whenever combat or difficult situations are involved.

The brave men and women who have served this branch for centuries have tirelessly served all of us at home to make sure we remain safe and protected from foreign threats. Each and every one of them deserve incredible honor for their duties.

This video briefly captures that history and shows how dedicated this branch of the military truly is.
