Finally, a home for an elite cadre of Marines that are challenged with the most critical mission in the entire United States Marine Corps. We are those chosen few or those Marines bold enough to volunteer to tell the Marine Corps story – to those few individuals that are proud/brave enough to accept an uncommon challenge that leads to earning the title . . . United States Marine.
Our legacy and contributions to the corps began on November 10, 1775, the Continental Congress commissioned Samuel Nicholas to raise two Battalions of Marines. That very day, Nicholas set up shop in Tun Tavern. He appointed Robert Mullan, then the proprietor of the tavern, to the job of chief Marine Recruiter — serving, of course, from his place of business at Tun Tavern. Prospective recruits flocked to the tavern, lured by (1) cold beer and (2) the opportunity to serve in the new Corps of Marines.
