are looking forward to celebrating the 242nd Birthday of the Marine
Corps at this year’s Luncheon.
General William J. Bowers USMC, President of the Marine Corps
University, has honored us by being our Guest of Honor. We
deeply appreciate the Oklahoma Marine community and the members of the
Coordinating Council who take time each year to honor our corps and
those who have served.
The pre-luncheon reception begins at 1030 and provides everyone a
chance to renew friendships and view the wonderful WW I and II Marine
Corps artifacts on display provided by Mr. Keith Myers and meet some of
the Marines that will be present.
Our location for the luncheon will be the same as last year, the Tower
Hotel (formerly Marriott), 3233 Northwest Expressway, Oklahoma City.
our Tradition & Lore segment this year will include, courtesy of the
Fort Sill MARDET, a rarely seen presentation (outside of Lawton) of
Marines in period uniform dating back to the early days of our Corps,
with the 1812 “shako” plate as a precursor to the Eagle, Globe and
Anchor and this year transferring to the back of our annual Birthday
Lunch Coin that each attendee will receive.
Join us, Col Tim Parker USMC, SgtMaj Moran USMC and their Fort
Sill MARDET Marines, as we view and celebrate 242 years of valor; it
you prouder than ever to “claim the title of United States Marine.”
Make an effort to find another Marine in your area or at work and
tell them about our luncheon – invite them to join us this year.
Due to the large number of attendees expected at the luncheon, we
would appreciate your returning the reservation form as soon as
set it down and think you will do it later – do it now.

Supporters, Wives, Guests. This event is open to the public and the inviting of others is encouraged.
