Happy Birthday to all our Marines



During the American Revolution, many important political discussions took place in the inns and taverns of Philadelphia, including the founding of the Marine Corps.

A committee of the Continental Congress met at Tun Tavern to draft a resolution calling for two battalions of Marines able to fight for independence at sea and on shore.

The resolution was approved on November 10, 1775, officially forming the Continental Marines.

As the first order of business, Samuel Nicholas became Commandant of the newly formed Marines. Tun Tavern’s owner and popular patriot, Robert Mullan, became his first captain and recruiter. They began gathering support and were ready for action by early 1776.

Each year, the Marine Corps marks November 10th with a celebration of the brave spirit which compelled these men and thousands since to defend our country as United States Marines.

Pure instigation here...

The standings for the season are, the redskins 6:3 the eagles 5:4.
I can't believe I told Sam I'd do some of his Thrusters if he lost the bet!!

Sam - you need to get McNabb in for some CF training! He looked pretty pretty gassed for the 20 minutes the Eagles offense was on the field. (May need to start him in the Elements class and work up!)
