On November 6, Marines from Seabrook, Kiawah and Johns Island will celebrate the 238thbirthday of the United States Marine Corps. The USMC was created November 10, 1775, at Tun Tavern in Philadelphia, PA.
Marines around the world celebrate the birthday with dinners, balls and remembrance ceremonies. A dinner will be held at the Seabrook Island Club on Wednesday, November 6 at 6 p.m. This will be the 10th annual dinner for local Marines that will include veterans from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
There will be MECEPS (Marine Enlisted Commissioning Education Program Students) who are active duty Marines and their spouses/dates from the Citadel as guests this year. These Marines are outstanding enlisted Marines who are completing their education and will become Marine Corps officers.
If you are a Marine and would like information about the dinner, please call Ed Dear at 768-5950.
