The Agenda and Activities of the Marine Corps Birthday Ball
Kevin Fitzgerald has over 40 years’ experience in real estate investment with companies such as U.S. Advisors, LLC. In addition to being the former CEO of U.S. Advisors, LLC, Kevin Fitzgerald is also a former U.S. Marine. Every year on November 10, active, reserve, and retired U.S. Marines can celebrate the day that the United States Marine Corps was established by attending a Marine Corps Birthday Ball.
Each base holds its own birthday ball celebration for current and former U.S. Marines. The Marines who attend each bring a guest, and all attendees wear formal dress. The men and women of the Marine Corps wear dress blues or evening dress uniforms, while guests wear formal eveningwear. Long gowns are the typical attire for female guests, and tuxedoes are typical for male guests.
The agenda for the evening’s celebrations consists of a cocktail hour, an official military ceremony, and dinner followed by dancing. During the military ceremony, the National Anthem is played, as well as the Marines’ Hymn. A traditional cake-cutting is also performed, and the ceremony concludes with remarks by the commanding officer and guest of honor. Afterwards, dinner is served, and the service men and women, as well as their guests, socialize and dance for the remainder of the evening.
