Happy 236th birthday, Marines! Above you’ll the see the official Marine Corps birthday video. Click through the jump to watch two more video tributes to the Corps’ that I like better. Be sure to turn the sound up on the first one at the 1:45 mark — just make sure you’re wearing headphones if you’re in the office, it’s got a ton of great profanity.
The second video shows Force Recon Marines practicing for and recapturing the merchant ship Magellan Star from Somali pirates in September 2010. (Unlike many videos we show, it’s actually set to good music, except for the Jack Johnson song, and even that song is pretty good, for Jack Johnson. Sorry to all you JJ fans.)
