Marine Corps Tradition:
On November 10th 1775 the Marine Corps was created by a resolution of Continental Congress at Tuns-Tavern Philadelphia. Since that date thousands of men have borne the name “Marine”. In memory of them it is fitting that those that call themselves Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.
Along with honoring the Corps birthday we will pay homage to all veterans past and present who have served in our nations military in honor of Veterans Day
Veteran info booths will be available for all veteran needs:
• East Los Angeles Veteran Center
