On November 10, 1775 at Tun Tavern, a unique group of men were formed into a force called the "Marines." Beginning as shipborne soldiers, the Marine Corps has become part of an air-ground team that is capable of responding rapidly to any situation. Its purpose is to close with the enemy and destroy them by fire and maneuver.
