ALBANY, GA (WALB) - The Albany Marine Base is celebrating the 233rd birthday of the U.S. Marines Corps with two cake cutting ceremonies.
The workers at the Maintenance Center attended the cake cutting ceremony that is tradition for the Marine Corps.
The oldest and the youngest Marines on base took part in the cutting. Retired Master Gunnery Sgt. David Bailey, who is 69 years old, passed the first piece of cake to the youngest, 19 year old Lance Corporal Sean Phillips.
A Marine just returned from Afghanistan told the Maintenance Center workers about the lives their work has saved.
"I can't tell you how many times I have heard about an M-Wrap that's gone outside the wire and may be about a click outside the FOB and hit IAD's, and every Marine that's inside them can walk away," said Gunnery Sgt. Dean Orial.
A special tribute was also made to Retired Marine Sgt. David Schlegel, who received a Purple Heart Quilt for his service in Vietnam in 1966.
The Marine Base as a whole will celebrate the Marine Birthday Friay morning with another cake cutting ceremony.
