WISH OUR MARINES A HAPPY 241st BIRTHDAY!
Don’t forget to take some time to recognize our United States Marine Corps who are celebrating their 241st Birthday today!
The Marines were born November 10th, 1775 when our founding fathers met at the 2nd Continental Congress in Philadelphia. Among the things they voted for that day was a resolution to raise two battalions of Marines to protect American shipping and fight pirates lurking around the Bahamas.
Since then, the Marines have been an indispensable component of America’s military power and legendary for their toughness and never-quit attitude that has carried them through some of the most fierce and bloody battles in history like Guadalcanal, Iwo Jima, Da Nang, Fallujah and others.
We still have thousands of Marines serving in Afghanistan, Iraq, and other places in the Middle East. Show your support for them by sending a Thanksgiving Holiday Care Package filled with love and seasonal treats that will remind them of home. Click here to donate now!!
Remember too, that the holidays can sometimes be the most lonely time for a serviceman or woman deployed overseas. Some troops might only get a single care package all year long – make sure they get it by donating today!

A MESSAGE FROM THE COMMANDANT OF THE MARINE CORPS
Did you know that TOMORROW IS VETERANS DAY? Since the creation of our great nation, men and women have risked their lives in order to protect us, some even paid with their lives, or suffered grave injuries that last a lifetime. For that we should be forever indebted.
What are you doing to honor our troops for Veterans Day? Unfortunately, too many Americans have lost sight of what Veterans Day is all about. We can’t forget that Veterans Day is about honoring those men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice, and those who are currently risking their lives to protect our nation. Will you send these important holiday supplies to our troops?
