Marine Corps Birthday Celebrations
Celebrations of the 242nd birthday of the United States Marine Corps Birthday are held throughout the world, generally on the date the Marine Corps was founded, at Tun Tavern, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on November 10, 1775. The event brings together, in one place, Marines who had served in WWII, Korea, Viet Nam, The Gulf, Iraq, Afghanistan and places in between. The common denominator is that they all had served in America’s unique military organization.
In Manchester, there will be a luncheon at Garlic John’s Restaurant, Routes 11/30, on Friday, November 10, beginning at 12 noon. Reservations are not required.
In Dorset, there will be a party at the Dorset Country Club. Contact Jerry Austin at 802-645-1951 for details and to make your reservations.
