243rd Birthday Luncheon


We are looking forward to celebrating the 243rd Birthday of the Marine Corps to honor our Corps and those who have served.  Our Guest of Honor will be Rear Admiral Greg Slavonic, who was recently appointed as Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Manpower and Reserve Affairs). For our Traditions and Lore, we will be commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Battle for Belleau Wood which will be presented by Mr. Lloyd Hardin Jr. (Executive Vice-President of the Council).  The pre-Luncheon reception begins at 1030 and provides everyone a chance to renew friendships and view the wonderful Marine Corps artifacts on display provided by Mr. Keith Myers. Please note this year’s Luncheon will be at a different location than previous years (and has plenty of parking).  In order to facilitate all attendees expected at the Luncheon, we would appreciate your returning the reservation form as soon as possible.

Don’t set it down and think you will do it later – do it now.
