    191011-N-ES994-1004 BOSTON (Oct. 11, 2019) Nineteenth Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) Marine Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr. retires from military service in the USS Constitution Museum with ceremonial support from USS Constitution’s crew. Prior to becoming Chairman, General Dunford served as the 36th Commandant of the Marine Corps, and he has served 42 years in the military. USS Constitution is the world’s oldest commissioned warship afloat, and is deeply connected to U.S. Marine Corps Heritage. The Naval Act of 1794 mandated the ship’s original crew include 50 Marines, and the line in the Marine Corps’ hymn “... to the shores of Tripoli...” comes from the Barbary War where USS Constitution’s Navy and Marine Corps team fought together over land and sea to secure peace. USS Constitution is designated America’s Ship of State, and her active-duty Navy crew engage in community outreach and education about the Navy’s history and the importance of naval power to more than 500,000 visitors each year.
