My dear General Holcomb:

It affords me great pleasure on the forthcoming one hundred and sixty-seventh Anniversary of the founding of the United States Marine Corps, to extend to the officers and men of the Corps through their Commandant, my sincere congratulations on their splendid record in the history of our nation.

Since 1775 the United States Marines have upheld a fine tradition of service to their country. They are doing so today. I am confident they will continue to do so.

Very sincerely yours,

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT
