JROTC celebrates 238th birthday of Marines

November 13, 2013

JROTC cadets from Granbury High School and Crossland Ninth Grade Center celebrated the 238th birthday of the U.S. Marine Corps Monday at GHS. The ceremony included the cutting of a birthday cake as well as the reading of a message from General James F. Amos, the Commandant of the Marine Corps. Tradition includes the first piece being presented to the oldest Marine (or cadet) present. Then, the oldest Marine in turn passes it on to the youngest Marine (or cadet) signifying the passing of experience and knowledge from the old to the young of the Corps.
