The United States Marine Corps celebrated its 192nd anniversary on 10 November 1967. Because the Marine Corps is one of the naval services, the history of the Marines, I'm proud to say, is naval history. Operating on sea, in the air, and on land the marines constitute a composite military force which is second to none in each of these elements.
