Marine Corps Birthday – 2010

.
It has been 235 years since John Adams stood up before the Continental Congress and made the motion that they create two battalions of Continental Marines. Recruiting soon began at Tun Tavern (appropriately) in Philadelphia, and the rest is history.
.
I celebrated 10 November 2010 by tipping a few pints, contemplating the Corps’ history, and by watching the James Cameron film Avatar (2009), which has an element of tribute to Marines, past, present and future. I wrote a review of the film and its relevance to the USMC here.
