It is a big Happy Birthday to the U.S. Marine Corps. They were celebrating their 237th birthday on Wednesday, and what better way to do that than with a cake.

Wednesday morning at the Jaliscos on Kostoryz, a group of local retired and active-duty Marines got together to share stories, coffee and cake.

We at Kiii News certainly thank all those Marines who have fought to defend our country, and we wish them a Happy Birthday.
