Shipmates, CNO Gilday here.
This year, the United States Marine Corps celebrates its 246th birthday… and on behalf of every Sailor in the Fleet… we celebrate alongside you today.
For the last two centuries, we have stood the watch together as teammates and have worked tirelessly to keep America safe both at home and abroad.
No doubt, the strength of our service is our people, and we take great pride in the legacy built by those who came before us. Indeed, we who serve today stand upon the shoulders of giants.
Thank you for all you do to keep America safe.
Happy Birthday Marines!
