Marine Corps 238th birthday set for Nov. 9

The Dixon Area Detachment of the Marine Corps League would like to invite all active duty Marines, Marine veterans, and the general public to a Marine Corps 238th birthday celebration.

The celebration will be at 6 p.m. Nov. 9 at JustUs, 601 N. Union Ave. in Polo. This year’s celebration is in honor of Staff Sgt. Justus Bartelt from Polo, who was a casualty on July 16, 2010, in Afghanistan.

The commandant’s birthday message will be played, and the traditional cake cutting ceremony will take place.

Let’s pack the place in honor of Justus. Semper fi.

Note to readers: Greg Cavanaugh is retired from the Marine Corps.
