The Pvt. Robert B. Crites Marine Corps League Detachment 995 celebrated the 242nd birthday of the United States Marine Corps on Nov. 10 at McD’s Pub.

Each attendee received a Marine candy emblem and a detachment button, and each lady was given a long-stem red rose.

The members and guests enjoyed the traditional steak and egg dinner with cake afterward being cut with a Marine sword and served by the oldest and youngest Marines there — Bob and Rob Caldwell. This was followed by door prizes being given and pictures being taken.

The group is open to all current/active or retired Marines. They meet the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at McD’s Pub, 1400 Locust St., Wilmington.
