US Marine Corps Jackets:
Throughout the First Barbary War in 1801-1805, the United States sent its Navy together with the Corps to protect safe passageway for merchant vessels through the Barbary shorelines of Northern Africa against the Barbary pirates. It was the source of the famous passage of Tripoli in the Marines' Hymn.
During the War of 1812, the Marines very first ground mission appeared to be the formation of an advanced base at Sackets Harbor, New York. Around 60 Marines had been involved. It established the US naval forces a base of operations along the shores of Lake Ontario, and ultimately, headquartered all their missions throughout the Great Lakes. Eventually, the Marines helped to repel a couple of British attacks on Sacket's Harbor.
Recently, the Marines became the earliest combat forces directed into Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom in November 2001, and in December, the Marines captured Kandahar Airport. Since then, the Corps have been rotating through, engaging Taliban and Al-Qaeda troops.
