This year, the Marine Corps celebrates 244 years of warfighting excellence and uncommon valor.
United States Marines define the world’s image of elite warrior-citizens, taking great pride in the legacy built by those who came before us and in carrying that legacy into the future.
Capabilities, battlefields and adversaries change, and Marines continue to adapt to every challenge – prepared to fight and win wherever and whenever our Nation calls.
What does not change is the Marine spirit – a warrior spirit rooted in our core values.
The 2019 Marine Corps Birthday message starts with narration from Marine Corps Commandant Gen. David Berger and the Sgt. Maj. of the Marine Corps Troy Black while Marines prepare gear and load onto a MV-22 Osprey, departing on a combat mission.
“Every Marine trains, prepares, 24-7 to get the phone call in the middle of the night that your unit’s deploying,” says Berger.
“The phone call that you weren’t expecting, but you’re ready for.”

The official birthday of the United States Marine Corps is on 10 November 1775, which is the day when the Second Continental Congress established the Continental Marines with the following decree:
That two battalions of Marines be raised consisting of one Colonel, two lieutenant-colonels, two majors and other officers, as usual in other regiments; that they consist of an equal number of privates as with other battalions, that particular care be taken that no persons be appointed to offices, or enlisted into said battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve for and during the present war with Great Britain and the Colonies; unless dismissed by Congress; that they be distinguished by the names of the First and Second Battalions of Marines.
