November 10th. A time for Celebration

The U.S. Marine Corps invites you to help celebrate its 248th birthday on Friday, November 10th, 2023. This is a very important day for all Marines who have served from across the world to gather, to celebrate, and toast our Corps. The Marine Corps Birthday Celebration is a time for Marines to reflect on their proud heritage and to celebrate their continued service to the nation. It is also a time for the public to show their appreciation for the Marines and their families.

We invite you to our “birthday” celebration on November 10th starting at 5:00 (short ceremony around 6:00, when we’ll cut the cake). Join us at Ecusta Brewing Company on Ecusta Road near Lowes (49 Pisgah Highway, Pisgah Forest, NC).

There is no charge for attending. Each individual will handle his or her own beverage and food orders. All Marines, their families, friends of the Corps and all veterans are invited to help us celebrate. For more information, please contact Larry Chapman at or call 828-883-2075.
The birthday cake is on us!
