Naperville Marines Ball
Nov. 5, 2022
Naperville Marines Ball will be Saturday, November 5th at the Naperville/Chicago Marriott. We have partnered with the Joliet reserve unit, Weapons Co 2/24 so we will have young Marines and their dates in attendance as well. Looking to be 300+ in attendance so a pretty big shindig. We will have the full shebang with Marines performing a sword detail, adjutant reading, color guard etc. Oh yeah! And our Guest of Honor will be the 16th SgtMaj of the Marine Corps, SgtMaj KENT!!!! We are working to see if we can also get General Conway, the 34th CMC to come as well (they led the Corps at the same time).
