The United States Marine Corps traces its roots to November 10, 1775, when the Second Continental Congress signed a resolution to establish two battalions of Marines to fight at sea and on shore. The Marine Corps is guided by the motto Semper Fidelis, Latin for "always faithful." The Marine Corps is America's expeditionary force in readiness, deployed to respond swiftly and aggressively in times of crisis.
