This year marks the 241st birthday of the United States Marine Corps, and the 2016 Commandant’s Marine Corps Birthday Ball is almost here! The ceremony will be Friday, November 11th at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center.
The ball is open to all current and former members of the Marines, Army, Navy and Air Force. Civilians, friends and guests are also invited to partake in the special night.
Cocktail hour will kick off at 4:30pm followed by the official ceremony at 6pm and dinner at 7pm. Then, you can dance until your heart’s content…or until 10:30pm, whichever comes first.
For those of you who have already secured your ticket, remember a dress code will be heavily enforced. For those of you who haven’t yet purchased a ticket, you have until October 31st.
