The Few. The Proud. The Marines.
(KYMA, KECY) -Nov. 10, the day before Veteran's Day marks another special day for servicemembers.
It honors the establishment of the U.S. Marine Corps.
The military branch started way back in 1775 as part of the U.S. Navy, leading up to the American Revolution.

As the 245th Marine Corps birthday draws near, @cmc_marinecorps reminds us how the Corps' legacy lives on in every Marine. #HappyBirthdayMarines pic.twitter.com/3FuqzHE6qe
The recruiting headquarters was in the Tun Tavern in Philadelphia.
That’s considered the birthplace of the Marines.
Today, Marine Corps members are proud to say they’re the first in and last out during military conflict.
If you know one, thank them for their service.
