ROCHESTER, Minn. – Although it might taste as sweet as their 200th birthday, a military branch celebrated another milestone on Thursday.

Dozens of people, including some veterans, were at RCTC for the 241st birthday of the Marine Corps. Along with the singing of the hymn, there was also a cake which of course was sliced by a sword and then given to the youngest Marine and oldest Marine. Officials tell us it’s important for them to keep showing how key the military is, especially to the younger generation.
