Marine Corps League to honor New Hampshire vets who served in Korea
The Lakes Region Detachment of the Marine Corps will host the annual Gathering of the Marines on Nov. 9 at the Margate Resort, 76 Lake St., Laconia. Opening ceremonies begin at 7 p.m. followed by a western-style buffet, reading of the Marine Corps Commandant's annual birthday message and traditional cake cutting.
The event coincides with the 60th anniversary of the truce the United States, its United Nations allies, the Republic of South Korea and the Communist nations of North Korea entered into on July 27, 1953, to end armed fighting. The actual end of the war did not occur until Jan. 31, 1955, with the signing of the armistice between the warring nations.
Dress code for the Gathering of Marines is military uniform, tuxedo, gown, formal dress or business attire. Cost is $45 per person. Reservations may be made by contacting Bob Patenaude, detachment commandant, at 603-253-7970; or by mail to Lakes Region Detachment, MCL, P.O. Box 764, Center Harbor 03226.
