Oorah! Happy 241st birthday to the United States Marine Corps!

On this day in 1775, the Second Continental Congress signed a resolution creating the United States Marine Corps and authorizing the first two battalions of Continental Marines. Legend has it that the first Marines were recruited out of a brewery in Philadelphia known as Tun Tavern. Here is a toast to all my Marine buddies out there!
