Happy 246th Birthday U. S. Merchant Marine – June 12, 2021

Happy 246th Birthday to the U. S. Merchant Marine service. I have run across a handful of military headstones in town for personnel who served in the Merchant Marine service.

As part of my research on various service/military unit/branch birthdays, I came across several articles on the Merchant Marine – including the U. S. Merchant Marine website – http://www.usmm.org/, the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy – https://www.usmma.edu/; a Wikipedia article https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Merchant_Marine, and a website – https://www.edumaritime.net/usa that includes several other countries’ merchant marine links. A couple of links from the Merchant Marine  website – http://www.usmm.org/faq.html#faq8 and http://www.usmm.org/faq.html
