Two Presidents Who Were "Sort Of" Marines

1. John Adams. Appointed Minister to France, Adams was a passenger aboard the 24-gun frigate USS Boston en rote to France 15 February -31March 1778. During the voyage, the frigate came across a British mercantman. Boston's skipper decided to seize the British vessel. As the frigate cleared for action, her Marines were mustered on the deck. Adams fell in beside them with a musket in hand, but was ordered below by thecommanding officer. The British vessel shortly struck her colors without a shot having been fired."
