Join us “virtually” on 10 November at 5pm Pacific to celebrate the Marine Corps’ 245th Birthday!
What does the Marine Corps Birthday mean to you?
To us at the Marines’ Memorial, the Birthday is a chance to celebrate the honor, tradition, camaraderie, and dedication of United States service members.
The Club is known for our festive Birthday Ball that normally gathers more than 500 attendees to eat, drink, dance, and celebrate the USMC together. This year, we have had to think beyond our normal traditions to pay proper tribute to the Corps. Combining new messages from our President & CEO, Chairman, and Guest of Honor General Peter Pace, USMC (Ret), plus archival footage from past Birthday Balls at the Club, we will have a virtual celebration that honors the Birthday and helps us come together, even if we are not in the same room.
On 10 November at 5pm Pacific, we hope you have some wine (or a martini) and a slice of cake ready to celebrate with Marines’ Memorial and our incredible members. (The video will be available on YouTube any time after 5pm as well!)
Happy Birthday and Semper Fidelis,
LtGen Michael A. Rocco and Your Marines’ Memorial Team
