PRLog - Nov. 13, 2012 - BOCA RATON - Broken Sound Club, a Platinum Club of America, honored American heroes on Saturday, November 10, 2012, as the 4th Air Naval Gunfire Liaison Company, Marine Forces Reserve, and the General AA Vandergrift Detachment, Marine Corps League, commemorated their 237th Birthday Ball.

Broken Sound was honored to have welcomed close to 620 Marines, their partners and invited guests, to observe a significant day held dear to Marines throughout the world.

Marines in their dress blue uniforms, reflecting the legacy of warriors who have served our nation, gathered in Broken Sound’s largest ballroom for a night of esprit de corps and celebration, as they enjoyed the traditional ceremony, dinner and danced.

Not only a night of traditional festivities but one of reflection, as guests watched and listened closely to the sequence of events, including, the Adjutant’s proclamation, the Adjutant’s call and sword detail, the presentation of colors and national anthem, and the moving message from the Guest of Honor, Sergeant Major John L. Estrada.

The ballroom fell silent as the ‘Marine Hymn’ played, and the ceremonial cake cutting began. As a sign of respect, and to recognize his contribution to the Corps, the first piece of cake was handed to the guest of honor; the next piece of cake, handed to the oldest Marine, and then passed to the youngest Marine, Lance Corporal Wheeler, born July 15th 1993. The passing of the cake from the oldest to the youngest, symbolizes the passing of history and traditions to the next generation.  

Across the country on this symbolic evening, Marines stood proud and humbled, as they not only celebrated the history and honor of the founding of the Marine Corps, but they remembered those lost in battle.

From the team at Broken Sound Club, Happy 237th Birthday Marines, Semper Fidelis.
