UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS
FOUNDED 1775
The Marine Corps was born on
November 10, 1775 by declaration
of the Second Continental Congress.
Captain Samuel Nicholas recruited
the first Marines from Philadelphia's
Tun Tavern to serve as naval
 infantry on the ships of the
Continental Navy. Since then
Marines have served in every climb
and place from the halls of
Montezuma to the shores of Tripoli
as expressed in the Marines' hymn.
Marines are experts in amphibious
military operations. They are
responsible for security aboard our
country's naval vessels and at our
embassies. The Marines are often
called our nation's first to fight
due to their ability to deploy
rapidly from ships located across the
globe at all times.
The few, the proud, the Marines.

The memorial is located at DeForest Veterans Memorial Park located on northbound North Main Street / County Highway CV, just north of its intersection with Carriage Way, DeForest, Wisconsin 53532.
