Happy Birthday to the United States Marine Corps

Today is the United States Marine Corps’ 234th birthday!

On the official website for the 2009 Birthday Ball statements from the Commander of the USMC, and General Lejeune (whom Camp Lejeune in North Carolina is named for,) along with this birthday video:

The United States Marine Corps Band is offering traditional birthday ball music for download on their website.

If you see any Marines or know anyone who served in the Corps…tell them Happy Birthday. It’s a important day.


Twitter Tuesday: @USMC

Drumroll please…it’s Twitter Tuesday!

And today’s Twitter user is also celebrating it’s birthday today: @USMC

@USMC is the official Twitter account for Headquarters Marine Corps. There are Tweets with a lot of multimedia content, including video clips of the latest series of Marine Corps recruitment television commercials. @USMC links to all official press releases from the Marine Corps, including the Marine Corps response to the social media ban in August, and the latest on the water study at Camp Lejeune in October. @USMC ensures its followers are also receiving content published by other news sources outside the Corps, like CNN, NBC and Chevy Salutes American Heroes contest.

@USMC and every other Twitter Tuesday user I showcase can easily be found on the Twitterers I Follow page of my blog.
