If you weren't there, you missed a great Ball!
Over 240 guests attended to help us celebrate the 241 years of the Marine Corps. Guest of Honor MSgt Duane King was awesome. The room and the ceremonies were awesome.
While we celebrated the Marine Corps, we also paid tribute to all branches of service, honoring them with the presence of service flags and playing of the service song medley.
The evening also saw us recognizing the Marine of the Year Vernon Kisling, the Jim Yakubsin Vision Award recipient Bill Beck, and the presentations by the Young Marines' Commander to their Young Marine of the Year and Adult Leader of the Year.
MSgt King is the Drum Major of the President's Own and says that comparing our ball to more than 500 he has attended in his 22-year career, this was hands down the best ball he has ever attended. Job Well Done to our Ball Committee, participants and volunteers.
