The Corps adopted the MarineCorps emblem in 19 November, 1868.
On October 23, 1983, the Marineheadquarters building in Beirut, Lebanon was bombed, causing the highest peacetime losses to the Corps in its history (220 Marines and 21 other service members of the 24th MAU were killed) and leading to the American withdrawal from Lebanon.
As of October 2005, Marine Generals Peter Pace (Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff) and James L. Jones (Commander of the United States European Command; NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Europe; and a former commandant of the MarineCorps) are senior in time and grade to the commandant.
