A series of events for the birthday celebration of a North Carolina-based Marine Corps division is wrapping up.
The 2nd Marine Division said more than 2,300 current and former
Marines will take part in the events on Friday at Camp Lejeune. The
events include a memorial service, awards ceremony and birthday
Marines celebrated earlier in the week with tank and artillery
live fire demonstrations.
The infantry division was founded Feb 1, 1941 and numbers more
than 15,000 enlisted members and officers. Members of the division have served in conflicts around the world since World War II.
