The Los Angeles Fire Department is a regimented agency that endorses paramilitary command principles. The men and women of the LAFD therefore admire, respect and praise all who have honorably served in our nation's Armed Forces.
The tenth day of November however, is a special day on which we as sworn yet civil servants, extend our profound appreciation and well wishes to those who are United States Marines.
November 10, 2012 is the Marine Corps 237th birthday.
As is tradition, United States Marines past and present will gather in a dignified manner across the globe - including at several Los Angeles Fire Stations - to briefly celebrate the 237th anniversary of the Corps, and to hear a birthday message from the Commandant.
In celebration of the remarkable men and women of the USMC, the LAFD will proudly host a gathering to honor active, reserve and veteran Marines, including those who now serve as Los Angeles Firefighters.
Members and veterans of every military branch and friends of the Corps are cordially invited to join Marines at this special event:

1355 North Cahuenga Boulevard
