Marine Corps Birthday Ceremony

We celebrated the Marine Corps' 232nd birthday on November 10th. With our limited resources we were still able to get a good cake and perform the traditional birthday ceremony. Members of our partnered U.S. Army unit were able to attend as well as the IA battalion HQ company that we are advising.
