Vice President Mike Pence, whose son Michael, is a navy, also wrote a tweet confirming the service’s birthday.

“As a proud father of a United States Marine, I’m honored to celebrate @USMC in 243 years of defending our freedom and this nation and helping keep our families safe,” Pence tweeted. “Happy Birthday Marines &#821

Office of National Intelligence Director Dan Coats published a Jubilee tweet which captures an annual tradition on Mariner Corps birthday.

“DNI Coats, joined by Brigadier General Henry, Director of Intelligence, USMC and ODNI Marines, participates in a traditional cake cutting ceremony to celebrate the Marine Corps 243th anniversary,” the office tweeted. “Happy Birthday, @USMC!”

“Think back before you got into Marine Corps,” said Neller. “At some point you saw or met a navy and you thought,” Should I have what it takes to be one of them? “So you made the commitment. You accepted the challenge.” And your first act of showing faith, you swore to protect and defend the United States constitution. “

“Happy 243 Anniversary to the United States Marine Corps!” Tweeted Army Chief Executive Gen. Mark A. Milley. “From the Montezuma halls to the mountains of Afghanistan, the army is proud to have struggled with the few and they are proud. Our Marines are exceptional warriors. #SemperFi.”
