United States Marine Corps Birthday
On 10 November 1775, the Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia, and passed a resolution stating that two Battalions of Marines be raised for service as landing forces with the fleet. This resolution established the Continental Marines and marked the birth of the United States Marine Corps. Celebration by Post 205 will be announced.
United States Navy Birthday
13 October is the official birthday of the U.S. Navy, which traces its roots back to the early days of the American Revolution. On 13 October 1775, the Continental Congress established a naval force, hoping that a small fleet of privateers could attack British commerce and offset British sea power. Celebration by Post 205 will be announced.
