MARINE CORPS-238 years Today November 10, 2013!!

Shores of Tripoli- --one of the first assignments for the new Marine Corps-  Jefferson sent the new Marine Corps  out to set down the Barbary Pirates (muslims).. The Barbaries  were demanding 20 % of the new U S GDP as tribute to not attack our ships and take US citizens hostage--
