We Celebrated Their 236th Birthday With US Marines

By
Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX Real Estate Connections
My husband is a former Marine having served during WWII. His service included
  • Fourth Anti-Aircraft Battalion on Guadalcanal
  • Sixth Marine Division Guam
  • Sixth Marine Division Okinawa
  • Sixth Marine Division Tsingtao, China for 9 months after the war ended
Like all Marines, he believes "Once A Marine Always A Marine". The National Museum of The Marine Corps in Prince William County is one of his favorite haunts.

Today, we attended the 236th birthday celebration at the museum. The oldest and youngest Marine in attendance participate in the ceremony. Arthur was only the second oldest in attendance. The oldest Marine had fought on Iwo Jima, the bloodiest battle in the history of the Corps.

We hope you enjoy the ceremony. It starts with The Marines Hymn and ends with Auld Lang Syne. The narration is by a museum staffer.
