Marine Week to Land in Seattle

marine week
The Emerald City will play host to the fifth annual Marine Week, July 26- Aug 3 2014!

Marine Week is a celebration of Community, Country and Corps – providing the American public the unique experience to directly connect with hundreds of Marines. During the week-long event, Seattleites will have the opportunity to climb aboard state-of-the-art aircraft and ground equipment, check out the latest military technology and combat weaponry, witness hand-to-hand martial arts demonstrations and engage in clinics with Marine Corps sports teams, all while taking in the sights and sounds of the Silent Drill Platoon and Marine Corps Band. Marines will also be lending a hand to local communities through dozens of volunteer service projects, including neighborhood clean-ups, park restorations and housing rebuilds.

Schedule The week will culminate with a full-scale combat demonstration as Marines simulate an amphibious assault in the Greater Seattle Area, highlighting the Corps’ unique capabilities to fight our country’s battles in the air, on land and at sea.
