Marine Corps Ball 2011

Where is yours going to be - my company / regiment HQ will be having ours in Santa Cruz CA

The irony is Santa Cruz is home of UCSC; a decidedly liberal school that cranks out radical leftist "anarchists" by the truckload

Oddly enough this our 2nd year there - pretty decent venue with good food & good bar facility

Looking forward to it - our youngest Marine; a PFC was born when I was in Junior high and hopefully we'll have the Kwajalien / WW2 Marine again this year; he was an epic man and an honor to meet

OT-I just came back from Washington, DC, for the 1st Marine Division reunion. Although I was only friends with one guy there, I hit all the hospitality rooms and made myself very hospitable :lol3: It was a fun time. The old WWII Marines are AWESOME!!! It was really humbling to be around a bunch of Marines that virtually saved the world from Japanese imperialism.
Semper Fi, Marines

Last year we had a kid born when I was in high school & a Korean War Marine. It was an honor to meet him, haven't found out who our old Marine is yet for tomorrow, although I do know our youngster signed up @ 17 and is one of the 0311's from my company
