My husband served active duty from 1985-1992.
Today Corner School held a Veterans' Day program for the Veteran's. It was a wonderful program. They also included the Marine Corps birthday and cake ceremony. The first piece of cake went to the Guest of Honor who was Mr. Charles M. Burkett former Corner Principle from 1974-1991. Then second piece of cake went to the oldest Marine in attendance. The third piece of cake went to the youngest Marine in attendance and was served by the oldest Marine in attendance. This is a tradition that all Marines take time in which to participate.
