Thanks to all that served then and since!
The Marines have landed [W. Thomas Smith Jr.]
Today marks the 231st anniversary of the raid on British-held Nassau, Bahamas (March 3, 1776).
It was the first-ever amphibious landing of American Marines and sailors, and it was the first time American forces landed on foreign shores.
