Resolutions of the Continental Congress established the Army on June 14, 1775; the Navy on Oct. 13, 1775; and the Marine Corps on Nov. 10, 1775. The Marines follow the Army and precede the Navy in shore ceremonies as a tradition of long standing. This tradition was affirmed by pronouncement of the Joint Board (Army and Navy) in 1910, 1927 and 1929. The National Military Establishment reaffirmed it in 1949.
