To 244 years of success: The 2019 Marine Corps birthday message from the commandant is out
With the Marine Corps’ 244th birthday quickly approaching, the commandant has released a long and winding video attempting to tie his vision for the Corps with the service’s historic past.

The video starts with narration from Commandant Gen. David Berger and then Sgt. Maj. of the Marine Corps Troy Black while Marines prepare gear and load onto a MV-22 Osprey, departing on a combat mission.

“Every Marine trains, prepares, 24-7 to get the phone call in the middle of the night that your unit’s deploying,” Berger says in the video. “The phone call that you weren’t expecting, but you’re ready for.”
