JULY 2021: INDEPENDENCE

This July 4th gives a whole new meaning to Independence, doesn’t it? While we won’t soon forget the losses and struggles of the past year-plus, the joys of gathering and celebrating together pull us forward into a new and better time. HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!

 

Here at the Marines’ Memorial, we are grateful every day for the generations of men and women who have devoted themselves to protecting the freedoms we enjoy. Our Living Memorial, Club events, and programs for veteran and active service members are all manifestations of that gratitude.

 

We ask for your help as we work to re-energize all of our programs that Commemorate, Educate, and Serve. This month, please consider an Independence Celebration DonationThank you!

 

Also of note for July:

> Our offices will be closed on July 5th in observance of Independence Day.
