Birthday Celebration at Cedar Beach 2016

The Lehigh Valley Detachment, once again, teamed up with the Bethlehem Detachment to put on the Birthday Celebration at the Cedar Beach Marine Corps Monument. The event went off without a hitch. In attendance were members from both detachments as well as; reperesentatives from the local reserve unit, the Leathernecks, and many local marine veterans and families. After the monument service we held a cake cutting ceremony at the Knights of Columbus. Detachment 296 member Charlie Helfrich and I were the oldest and youngest marines present.
