Informational video about the US Navy flag.
The #Marine Corps adopted #Semper Fidelis as its official motto in 1883 (Semper Fidelis is also the title of the official musical March of the Marine Corps). Translated from Latin, Semper Fidelis means “Always Faithful.” U.S. Marines use an abbreviated verbal version, “Semper Fi,” to voice loyalty and commitment to their Marine comrades-in-arms.
#Flag-Works has added a new Military Flag. 3′ x 5′ #Semper Fi Nylon Flag with Header and Grommets. Made in the USA
The Battle of Iwo Jima was a major battle in which the United States #Marine Corps landed on and eventually captured the island of Iwo Jima from the Japanese Imperial Army during World War II.
Joe Rosenthal’s Pulitzer Prize winning AP photo of the Feb. 23, 1945 flag raising on Mt. Suribachi, Iwo Jima, was originally misidentified by military sources. Originally identified, from left, in this vintage graphic: Pfc. Franklin R. Sousley; Pfc. Ira Hayes; Sgt. Michael Strank; Pharmacist’s Mate 2nd Class John H. Bradley; Pfc. Rene A. Gagnon; Sgt. Henry O. Hansen. The Marine at far right was later correctly identified as Cpl. Harlon Block, not Hansen.

BLUE STAR – IN SERVICE BANNERS AND FLAGS
The In Service Banner was designed in 1917 by WWI Army Captain Robert Quessner, the service star banner is traditionally hung in the window of the home of a person who has a family member currently serving in the U.S. military. That person can be a son, daughter, wife, husband, etc. The blue star represents one family member currently in service; a gold star on a banner represents a family member who was killed during service. Seeing these banners today in windows of homes reminds every one of us that war is not something that happens overseas on far-away lands, but is something that affects every street and neighborhood in our country. One, Two and Three Blue Star Banners are 8″ x 15″ with crossbar and gold cord tassel. Also available are 3’x 5′ flags.
On November 10, 1775, the Second Continental Congress meeting in Philadelphia passed a resolution stating that “two Battalions of Marines be raised” for service as landing forces with the fleet. This resolution established the Continental Marines and marked the birth date of the United States Marine Corps. Serving on land and at sea, these first Marines distinguished themselves in a number of important operations, including their first amphibious raid into the Bahamas in March 1776, under the command of Captain (later Major) Samuel Nicholas.
The first commissioned officer in the Continental Marines, Nicholas remained the senior Marine officer throughout the American Revolution and is considered to be the first Marine Commandant. The Treaty of Paris in April 1783 brought an end to the Revolutionary War and as the last of the Navy’s ships were sold, the Continental Navy and Marines went out of existence.
Following the Revolutionary War, increasing conflict with Revolutionary France led to the formal re-establishment of the Marine Corps on 11 July 1798. Marines saw action in the quasi-war with France, landed in Santo Domingo, and took part in many operations against the Barbary pirates along the “Shores of Tripoli”.
Since then, Marines have participated in all the wars of the United States, and in most cases were the first service members to fight. To date, Marines have executed more than 300 landings on foreign shores.
Today, there are more than 200,000 active-duty and reserve Marines, organized into three divisions stationed at Camp Lejeune, Camp Pendleton and Okinawa, Japan. Each division has one or more expeditionary units, ready to launch major operations anywhere on short notice. Marines expeditionary units are self-sufficient, with their own tanks, artillery, and air forces. The motto of the service is Semper Fidelis, meaning “Always Faithful” in Latin.
