The United States Marine Corps has been protecting America since the Second Continental Congress raised two battalions of Continental Marines in 1775. The Marine Corps is still exhibiting “Uncommon Valor” in protecting America from harm. The inscription above is from the famous Iwo Jima Memorial, Arlington, Virginia.
