On November 10, 1775 the Continental Congress commissioned “two Battalions of Marines be raised” for service as landing forces for the recently formed Continental Navy. Over the last 240 years Marines have executed more than 300 landings on foreign soil.

Today, there are roughly more than 200,000 active-duty and reserve Marines, divided into three divisions stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina; Camp Pendleton, California; and Okinawa, Japan. Each division has several expeditionary units capable of launching major operations anywhere in the world on short notice.

 

The “Marines’ Hymn” is the official hymn of the United States Marine Corps. It is the oldest official song in the United States military.

Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
