Former Indianapolis Mayor and UIndy Visiting Fellow Greg Ballard will lead the University for the 2019 Celebration of the 244th birthday of the Marine Corps on Friday, November 8, 2019 at 3:00 p.m.

On November 10, 1775, the Continental Congress resolved that the “two Battalions of the Marines be raised.” Formal observance of the birthday of the Marine Corps began on November 10, 1921.

One of the greatest traditions is the passing of the first piece of cake to the oldest Marine present, who then passes the cake to the youngest Marine present. This gesture symbolizes the passing of knowledge from the experienced Marines to the new generation of Marines.
