ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Marines and civilians from MCLB Albany and its commands have celebrated the 237th birthday of the Marine Corps with a cake-cutting ceremony at 10:00 this morning in front of Building 3500, on base.

The ceremony included a uniform pageant, in which various Marines wore Marine Corps uniforms that were prevalent throughout the Corps' history.
