Today marks 247 years of service by the United States Marine Corps. The Marine Corps Birthday. The Marine Corps Birthday is celebrated all over the world on November 10. We at Palm Garden celebrated this special occasion with one of our new special Guests, Mrs. P whose late husband served in the Marine Corps with distinction and valor during the Korean War. Mrs. P and her husband celebrated the Marine Corps Birthday together for many years.  She and her family continue to celebrate the Marine Corps Birthday each year because they consider it an honor to have served.


Today our very own Director of Clinical Services, Robert Reed- a former Marine himself, celebrated the 247th birthday with Mrs. P.  Pictured above is a quilt that Mrs. P had made and a US Flag that was flown over a free Afghanistan on May 1, 2011.  This flag is special to Robert because it came from Robert’s own Marine Corps son. Mrs. P, we proudly and gratefully wish you a very Happy Marines Corps Birthday and we thank you and your entire family for your service.  It is our honor to celebrate this important milestone with you as family.
