Today is the Marine Corp’s 243rd birthday.
We created this custom graphic for our social media accounts.
The photo we used is of a Marine (name withheld) with the 11th Marine Expeditionary Unit executing a low forward knife thrust during martial arts training at Camp Pendleton, California on Oct. 2, 2018. The U.S. Marine Corps photo was taken by by Gunnery Sgt. Robert B. Brown Jr.
