MY DEAR GENERAL:

It gives me great pleasure on this, the 166th anniversary of the founding of the United States Marine Corps, to extend to the entire Corps, through the Major General Commandant, my warm congratulations on its glorious record in the defense of our country during the full course of the nation's history. I am confident that the Corps will live up to its proud record in the years to follow.

Very sincerely yours,

FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT.

The Major General Commandant,
