  Marine Corps Ball

Each year, Detachment 1296 sponsors a Marine Corps Birthday Ball in November.  While it is a tremendous amount of work for the unit, all involved look forward to this opportunity to provide a special night for active and retired Marines, their families, and the supporting community.

Our next Marine Corps Birthday Ball is scheduled for November 10, 2018. Tickets will be available beginning in August 2018.

We hope you can join us for this special evening, steeped with rich United States Marine Corps history.  Detachment #1296 welcomes donors for this event (see the levels available on the "Our Supporters" link in the Detachment Scuttlebutt section on this page) and any other assistance to make this a memorable evening.

We have been fortunate to have terrific guest speakers such as:
2017 - Colonel John Alexander, USMC (Ret)
2016 - Lieutenant General Carol Mutter, USMC (Ret)
2015 - General William Nyland, USMC (Ret)
2014 - Major General Thomas Murray, USMC
2013 - Brigadier General Thomas Draude, USMC (Ret)
