DLA Distribution Commanding General delivers Marine Corps birthday message

By DLA Distribution Public Affairs

November 10th marks the 246th Birthday of the United States Marine Corps Birthday; I would like to wish all Marines, past and present, and our DLA Distribution employees a Very Happy Marine Corps Birthday!

This day is set aside to celebrate the shared service, history, and legacy of the United States Marine Corps who have fought in every clime and place. As GEN David H. Berger, CMC, states in this year’s Marine Corps Commandant Birthday Message, “We who serve today represent an unbroken chain that stretches back 246 years. As we mark our anniversary, we remember those who went before us, and as we look over the horizon to new service, new dedication, and new achievement, we solemnly swear to uphold their example of honor, courage, and commitment.”

I would also like to recognize you, our DLA Distribution employees who loyally support the Warfighter each day. You remain steadfast in your dedication to accomplish the mission and for your adaptability and continued excellence! I thank you on behalf of all the Warfighters.

To all who have earned the title Marine, I wish each one of you a heartfelt 246th Birthday! Please take the time to thank a Marine for their service and find a way to honor their sacrifice.

Happy 246th Birthday, Marines!

Semper Fidelis!
