1. Fun fact: USMC was born in a tavern

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tun_Tavern



Tun Tavern was a tavern and brewery in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA, which was a founding or early meeting place for a number of notable groups. It is traditionally regarded as the site where what became the United States Marine Corps held its first recruitment drive during the American Revolution. It is also regarded as one of the "birthplaces of Masonic teachings in America".

Probably no surprise to the legendary Black Sheep (VMF-214)


Semper Fi!
