For Veterans Day 2019, we wish to honor all the active and retired members of our armed forces, and we are featuring our new USMC blanket, “The Few, the Proud.” November 10th is the official birthday of the United States Marine Corps. On that date in 1775, the Second Continental Congress established the Continental Marines to support America’s Revolutionary War.

The Few, The Proud

The Eagle, Globe, and Anchor is the official emblem of the United States Marine Corps. Each element signifies the Marine Corps mission and legacy. The anchor reflects the naval tradition of the Marines as part of the Department of the Navy. The globe represents readiness to serve in any part of the world. The bald eagle, symbol of America, holds a ribbon in its beak that reads “Semper Fidelis,” or “Always Faithful,” a reference to the unending valor and loyalty of the Corps.
