Happy 235th Birthday, Marines.

On this day in 1775 in Tun Tavern the U.S. Marine Corps was organized.

Known and feared the world over, it is the most Catholic arm of the U.S. military. Most Catholic not only in having more Catholics, by far, than any other major portion of the military (by percentage, that is, with Special Ops, especially the SEALs, have a higher percentage), but also in their respect for history and tradition, and in their greater dedication to one another and to self-sacrifice.

Somehow I believe all the above items are related.

Semper Fidelis, Marines.

    Very interesting re the % & #’s. Where can one find this data? Is there any systematic listing?

    The Chaldeans in Baghdad sure could have used a few Marines when brutally attacked. If we can’t defend ourselves from such as these the fanatical jihadists will overrun us.
