The 12th Man

Just announced!
The 12th Man – Special Film Screening and Panel
at the Marines’ Memorial Club – 609 Sutter Street, San Francisco

23 January 2020 – 6:00pm film screening, panel discussion to follow

About The 12th Man:
This breathtaking action adventures tells an incredible true-life story of heroism and a man’s unbreakable will to live. Norway, 1943: after a failed anti-Nazi sabotage mission leaves his eleven comrades dead, Norwegian resistance fighter Jan Baalsrud (Thomas Gullestad) finds himself on the run from the Gestapo through the snowbound Arctic reaches of Scandinavia. It’s a harrowing journey across unforgiving, frozen wilderness that will stretch on for months – and force Jan to take extreme action in order to survive. With gut-punching realism and vivid psychological immediacy, director Harald Zwart pays tribute to one man’s extraordinary courage – and to the everyday heroes who helped him along the way. Jonathan Rhys-Meyers costars.

On January 23rd at 6pm, the Marines’ Memorial and the Royal Norwegian Consulate General in San Francisco will show this inspiring film at the Marines’ Memorial Club in San Francisco.  Following the viewing, a panel discussion will feature the director and producer, Harald Zwart, producer Veslemøy Ruud Zwart, and actor Jonathan Rhys-Meyers.

This event is free and open to the public.

Happy Birthday, USMC!

An item from a fellow veterans organization in the Bay Area.


Happy Birthday,
U.S. Marine Corps!
We build our lives on tradition.

 

Just try to picture New Year’s Eve without a midnight countdown, or Independence Day without fireworks.

 

At 244 years old today, the U.S. Marine Corps has had a lot of time to build up traditions. Across the world, Marines are celebrating their birthday with time-honored customs like slicing a cake with a sword and handing out the first pieces to the oldest and youngest Marines in the room. It’s as much a part of their identity as the nickname “devil dog” (which dates to WWI).

A Marine’s character is less tangible than the Eagle, Globe and Anchor on his or her uniform, but it’s as much a tradition. And their diehard belief in loyalty, best summed up by the Marine Corps motto “Semper Fidelis” (Always Faithful), is something we can all easily adopt.

 

Will you consider demonstrating your commitment to our veterans, currently serving and their families with a gift? Supporting the Marines’ Memorial on this special day allows us to fund our programs, including:

 

  • Aid & Assist Program — Provides care packages for deployed service members, complimentary memberships for currently serving and subsidized rooms during training in the area and while transitioning to civilian life.
  • Gold Star Parents Honor & Remembrance Event — Offers grieving parents the means to connect with a supportive community and build essential relationships that last a lifetime.
  • Scholarship Program — Gives the children and grandchildren of veterans the opportunity to pursue higher education.
By giving on this special day, you’ll follow a tradition older than the United States — supporting those who defend our freedoms.

 

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

 

If your giving is restricted to 501(c)3 organizations, please consider a gift to Marines’ Memorial Foundation which supports all programs of the Marines’ Memorial Association. Please contact the Marines’ Memorial Development Department at development@marinesmemorial.org for more information.

Those of you both in and out of California are surely aware of the devastating fires and blackouts throughout the state in the last month.  The Marines’ Memorial continues to support those displaced from their homes as best we can, whether housing them at the Club & Hotel at a subsidized rate, or assisting them in finding another hotel with availability.

Although our “Aid & Assist” fund has a primary support focus for our Active Duty service members, this program also allows us to offer our members a deeply discounted rate during tragedies like wildfires. Thank you for helping us to support fellow Veterans and active military with your generosity.

MajGen Ray Smith to speak on Grenada at the Marines’ Memorial

An item from one of our fellow veterans organizations in the Bay Area.


Commemoration of Grenada with Guest Speaker MajGen Ray Smith
Grenada image

Commemoration of Grenada with Major General Ray Smith, USMC (Ret) 

23 October 2019 – 6:00pm
Marines’ Memorial Club – 609 Sutter St (@ Mason), San Francisco

Join Marines’ Memorial on 23 October as we welcome Major General Ray Smith, USMC (Ret) to reflect on his experiences with the Battle of Grenada.

 

On 25 October 1983, just two days after the 1983 Beirut Barracks Bombing which claimed the lives of 220 US Marines, 18 sailors, and three soldiers, President Ronald Reagan, citing the threat posed to American nationals on the Caribbean nation of Grenada by that nation’s Marxist regime, orders the U. S. Military  to invade and secure their safety.

 

The invading force consisted of the Army’s rapid deployment force, Marines, Army Delta Force, Navy SEALs, and ancillary forces totaling 7,600 troops, together with Jamaican forces and troops of the Regional Security System (RSS).  The force defeated Grenadian and Cuban resistance after a low-altitude airborne assault by Rangers on Point Salines Airport at the south end of the island, and a Marine helicopter and amphibious landing on the north end at Pearls Airport.

 

During Operation Urgent Fury, American forces sustained 19 killed and 116 wounded. Help Marines’ Memorial commemorate these young service members as we learn details of the battle from Major General Smith, who led Battalion Landing Team 2/8 in both Grenada and Beirut.
