The Marine Corps Birthday Ball is a tremendous celebration, recognizing the birthday of the United States Marine Corps, dating back to November 10, 1775, when the Marines were established. The USMC Ball is an annual tradition, which officially started in 1925, when the first Ball was celebrated.
Each year the great men and women of the United States Marine Corps get the opportunity to be recognized and honored at the annual Marine Corps Ball. The Marine Corps Ball is an opportunity for the Marines to proudly wear the military meals earned by their dedication and commitment to their country. Medals of America has been supplying our fine Marine Corps with Marine Medals, Marine Badges and Marine Corps insignia for 38 years, since 1976.
