It’s that time of the year again. Marine Week is here.
The Marine Corps’ annual traveling exhibit of all things leatherneck set up shop in Cleveland this year, and will call Ohio home for the week. There’s a variety of exhibits, concerts and volunteer events, as this listing outlines.
Marines from Ohio have a rich history in the Corps. Cleveland alone has yielded five Medal of Honor recipients, Marine officials said. Third Battalion, 25th Marines, out of Cleveland, also contributed heavily during the Iraq war.
The Corps will push out content about Marine Week this week on Twitter using the hash tag “#MarineWeek.” Stay tuned for more there.
So cool! I’m glad someone is honoring our troops like this!
