The Marine Corps Birthday


Continental Marines

The Marine Corps Birthday on November 10 commemorates the date when the Continental Marines were established as an Armed Force of the United States, in 1775. This day honors the Marines, who have been defending the country since America was born. The United States Marine Corps motto is "Semper Fidelis".

On this day, the Fairfield County Sheriff's Office would like to thank all Marines for their service and Happy Birthday to the Marine Corps.
