Happy 236th Birthday to the Marine Corp!
This past Saturday MDM Entertainment was proud to be a part of the Marine Corps 236th birthday celebration. We provided DJ entertainment for the H&S Co. 2nd Battalion 24th Marines 2011 Marine Corps Birthday Ball held at the Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza.
This is the 2nd year we have provided DJ services for the ball and were honored once again to be a part of the celebration. It is always a very moving experience to be part of the celebration and in the presence of so many brave men and women. Words cannot express the respect and gratitude I have for these men and women.
The ceremony began with a moment of silence for the Marines’ fallen comrades and a reading of the names of the marines from the 2/24 who had paid the ultimate price defending their country.
Everyone then watched a message from the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Then there was then the traditional presentation of colors and cake cutting ceremonies. After that there were some moving speeches by different officers.
A fantastic dinner was served by the staff of the Mart Plaza Holiday Inn. I am always impressed by the quality of the food and the impeccable service by the staff there. This is one of my favorite venues in Chicago for a variety of reasons!
After dinner the dancing began and we had a dance floor packed full of Marines and their guests having a great time right up until the very last song.
The Marines have already invited us back for next year and we are looking forward to it!
Happy Birthday to the Marine Corp! Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts to all the Marines and men and women of the United States Armed Forces for everything you do for us.
