Our Birthday Ball Celebration will be held just three months before the 75th anniversary of the Battle on Iwo Jima. So we will pay tribute to that battle and those Marines. At this event we will miss our good friend Bob Gasche who has served 5 terms as Commandant (2000 - 2005), 4 terms as Junior Past Commandant (2005-2007, 2009-2011) and 8 terms as Junior Vice Commandant (1999, 2013-2019). He embodied the humility and patriotism that defined The Greatest Generation. The victory at Iwo Jima was decisive in leading to the end of the fighting in the southern Pacific. We are forever indebted to Mr. Gasche and his fellow Marines for their brave contribution to the world.
