Description






The Marine Corps' birthday is a day of pride and respect, and its celebration is one of the most revered traditions in the Marine Corps. Each year, on November 10th, Marines around the world celebrate what they see as their "second" birthday, the day the United States Marine Corps was born.

The tradition runs deep. For years, Marines who have served and are currently serving have been telling each other "Happy Birthday" on November 10th and attending Marine Corps Birthday Balls in cities across the globe. On November 4th, 2017, we cordially invite you to come and celebrate the 242nd Marine Corps Birthday with the Marines of Recruiting Station Tampa.


“We are all members of the same great family … On social occasions the formality of strictly military occasions should be relaxed, and a spirit of friendliness and goodwill should prevail.”

MajGen John A. Lejeune

13th Commandant of the Marine Corps (1920–1929)
