Members of Maryland 2-F along with members of Pennsylvania's Original Mason Dixon Guards were honored to attend the
annual birthday of the United States Marine Corps in the city of Philadelphia and escorted one of our own.... North Carolina's
own Gunnery Sgt. Retired Robert Masters. We were part of the Marine Corps motorcycle column & and rode into Philadelphia
with Marines and Marine veterans from all over the country. We went to Independence Hall where the Declaration of Independence
was signed in 1776 and at that point a representative from the governor's office came down to read the proclamation of the Marine Corps.
From there we ascended on the historical landmark where Tun Tavern once stood which in 1775 on November 10th the Marine Corps
of the United States was born. It was a great day for freedom and a great day for Brotherhood with our nation's finest.
