Naperville Marines Hold Flag Raising Ceremony

Flag Raising Ceremony

The Naperville Marines held a flag raising ceremony in honor of the Marine Corp’s birthday.

“The guys that started this organization always had a flag raising either on November 10, the Marine Corp birthday, or a day before,” said Wayne Fischer, member of the Naperville Marines. “The important thing is that we do the flag raising of the Marine Corp flag and the U.S. flag here and that we honor our fallen men and women too.”

Another birthday tradition is the Marine Ball, which will be tonight to honor and celebrate the United States Marine Corp
