Marine Corps Reserve Birthday
An event every year that begins at 12:00 am on day 29 of August, repeating indefinitely
The Marine Forces Reserve (also known as the United States Marine Corps Reserve or the U.S. Marine Corps Forces Reserve) was created in 1916, in conjunction with the creation of the Navy Reserve. Since then, the evolution of this force would expand from just thirty-five to today’s roughly 40 thousand Marine Corps Reservists. The Marine Corps Reserve Birthday is observed every year on the 29th of August.
