- Card dimensions: 2 3/16 X 3 7/16 inches
These playing cards honor the men and women of the United States Marines Corps who make sacrifices everyday while making sure that the rest of the world is safe at home. This deck features the United States Marine Corps logo and is a great gift to acknowledge someone who is currently serving, or has served.
On June 22, 1954, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed an Executive Order approving the design of an official seal for the United States Marine Corps. The current emblem traces its roots to the designs and ornaments of early Continental Marines as well as British Royal Marines. The emblem took its present form in 1868. Before that time, many devices, ornaments, and distinguishing marks followed one another as official marks of the Corps.
Approved insignia designs and seals are held in trust by the National Archives in the Military holdings.
