@ Collier- True as that may be, by November 10th the Navy had already had its 236th birthday (13 October 1775). So they too were celebrating 236 years of service. Why should the Marines stop our Navy brethren from celebrating alongside us?

We should all be very proud of this group of young adults working together to serve others.
