The summer of 2012, as a Marine Corp licensee, I was invited to attend Marine Week in Cleveland, Ohio. It was an awesome experience and honor to be part of a week filled with well executed demonstrations, the Quantico Marine Band and the Silent Drill Platoon performances, as well as state-of the-art ground vehicles, aircraft, weaponry and equipment displays. Most impressive were the marines themselves, interacting with adults and young children answering questions and demonstrating the tools of their trade.
Marine Week is held in a different city each summer across the United States. All events are free and open to the public.
