Navy/Marine Corps Birthday Ball

Color guard parades in the cake.

On Friday, November 1, 2019, members of NROTC San Diego celebrated the 244th Birthday of the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The event featured a beautiful venue, color guard, ceremony, dinner, and a night of fun and memories. The ceremonial cutting of the cake featured both the youngest and oldest member of the battalion. Certain battalion members fulfilled crucial roles to the night's success, and many brought guests to partake in the festivities. The date was chosen in order to accomodate and recognize both birthdays. The Navy's birthday is on 13 October and the Marine Corps' birthday is on 10 November.
