(WSPA) – Nov. 10, the day before Veterans Day, marks another special day for service members.
It honors the establishment of the U.S. Marine Corps.
The military branch started back in 1775 as part of the U.S. Navy, leading up to the American Revolution.
The recruiting headquarters was in the Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, which is considered the birthplace of the Marines.
If you know a marine, thank them for their service.
