  • MARINE CORPS BIRTHDAY RUN



    ARLINGTON, VA --

    The Marines ran from Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall to the Marine Corps War Memorial where Berger and Black shared some motivation with the Marines.

    “For 244 years, we have dominated, we have won, we have been victorious, and we will continue to be in the future against all of our enemies because we are who? The Marine Corps.”
    Sergeant Major Troy E. Black, Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps

    Commandant of the Marine Corps Gen. David H. Berger and Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps Troy E. Black led a motivational run on Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Nov. 5. The run was held in celebration of the Marine Corps’ upcoming 244th birthday.

    The run began a week of celebration leading up to the birthday on Sunday.

    “Having one day to celebrate the birthday is not good enough,” said the commandant. “We have to have a whole week.”
