The traditional cake-cutting ceremony was not established formally until 1952 by Gen. Lemuel C. Shepherd Jr.. No one knows for certain when it started, but records indicate that there was a cake ceremony at Marine Barracks Washington DC in 1937. MARSOC Marines say that they were given a piece of birthday cake in their 1943 celebration.

From the nickname “Devil Dogs” to “Leathernecks,” they are the foundation for legendary warfighters from the Revolution to Afghanistan. If the Corps follows the path laid by their forefathers: to fight to win, and see only brothers and sisters instead of allowing themselves to be divided, they will still be the greatest fighting force on which we rely. Despite setbacks, imperfect people, and agendas of the woke, the Marine warfighters will keep to the traditions that have given rise to the service branch held in such high esteem. The few. The proud. The Marines. Semper fidelis, Marines. And Happy Birthday!
