Belated Happy Birthday!

Also, being so close to Veterans Day, I usually take a moment to remember Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. I missed it this year and I apologize. The United States Marine Corps came into being on November 10, 1775 so happy 233 birthday! Semper Fi!

The Continental Congress appointed Robert Mullan to raise two companies of Marines. Mullan also was the proprietor of the Tunn Tavern in Philadelphia. The tavern is where most of these first two companies were recruited at. Hence the reference in the earlier posted joke. Tunn Tavern is the birthplace of the Marines.
