Question on National Policy for Birthday

Subject: 2020 Marine Corps Birthday.


I have had several member questions concerning the OFFICIAL status of the Marine Corps Birthday for 2020. In my mind, 10 November will always happen, but group celebrations will always be based on “state” requirements for public gatherings. At the same time, a couple of my members “have been told” that CMC has cancelled celebrations for this year.

Does the MCL and/or the Corps have an official policy for 2020?  If so, what is it?

The Marine Corps and Marine Corps League have not established nor voiced official positions or direction.

Individual communities need to use logic in keeping with the rules in their area as it pertains to COVID-19.

The CMC cancelled “his” birthday ball but nothing else.
