Marines celebrating their 237th birthday
DIXON – Commandant Tim Villa invites all Sauk Valley Area Marines and the public to the Dixon Area Marine Corps League Detachment’s Marine Corps Birthday Pageant, celebrating the 237th birthday of the corps.
It will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Dixon VFW, 1560 Franklin Grove Road. Admission is free.
Traditionally, regardless of location, Marines pause to observe their birthday by sharing a cake. A sword is used to cut the cake as a reminder that they are a band of warriors, committed to carrying the sword, so that our nation may live in peace.
