Happy Birthday Marine Corps by RyanEchidnaSEAL Happy Birthday Marine Corps by RyanEchidnaSEAL
Today, November 10th, is the birthday of the United States Marine Corps. Yup, the entire branch was activated on this day 229 years ago! That was during the American Revolution.

Up there is the Continental Congresses statement to activate the Corps. We also have the first verse of the Marine Corps Hymn, and their motto "Semper Fi." (Semper Fidelis = translates to Always Faithful.)

Who better to celebrate this wonderful day than my three Marine characters. The female purple hedgehog is my only Marine officer and fighter pilot, Major Bristy Carol "Knife" Hedgehog. The black hedgehog in the back is a Drill Instructor, Staff Sergeant Zagger Hinderson. And the middle one in the Class Alpha Dress uniform is Gunnery Sergeant Jazen Anderom, or you can call his rank as "Gunny."

Anyway, happy birthday to the men and women of the United States Marine Corps and to those who tried or are still trying at Parris Island and San Diego. You all had what it took to retrieve yourselves the Eagle, Globe, and Anchor. And to those who failed, your attempt of trying and wanting to join the Corps is better than some who hate our military. Once again, I wish the Corps a happy birthday and I'll wish it again next year.

HOO-AH!!!

Excellent job! The Marines are a courageous bunch, and you made represented different roles in the Corps pretty well. I've seen a lot of pictures of USMC art, but few include a marine aviator.

Nice, especially on the quality on those uniforms! Doing believable camo is so hard in such a small space. Excellent all around. Semper Fi!

Don't know why the military would be hated; it's those in power that decide our fate.

Either way, congratulations, Marines!
