The USMC makes a big deal of their birthday. Even people who aren't in the Marines know when the ball is coming up because it's something they hype up and Marines look forward to. They take pride it in. Whereas tomorrow, June 14th, is the Army Birthday (bet you didn't even realize that) and most people don't know or care because why should they? The only thing I know about Army birthday's are mandatory formations and "moral runs." Do better Army!

I love the Army. I love history. I love parties. I like looking fancy from time to time. WTH Army?!

Why can't we have a fun birthday? Why don't we already? If anyone has any good "Army Birthday Memories" please share them because I've never heard one.

SSG Carlos Madden Espirit de Corps is ingrained in every Marine Corps Recruit from day one. There's something special about earning the title, "United States Marine." By the way, I do know the birthdays of the other branches (except Space Force) even though I never served in any of them!

Brother Carlos, I have thought the exact same thing. Gtg with other vets and the Marine Corps ball does get mentioned quite a bit. We need a celebration as well IMHO

Because the Marine Corps was started in a bar. You don't forget that.

I was career Air Force. I can't tell you when our birthday is.

My dad was career Air Force, and he's 3 months older than the Air Force.

It's 18 SEP, 1947.
